Speedy Freight support Stars of HOPE

“I want to personally thank Speedy Freight for their support of our Stars of HOPE volunteer outreach in Manchester and London in the aftermath of the recent tragedies,” stated Jeff Parness, founder and Executive Director of New York Says Thank You Foundation, the international disaster relief organization that runs the Stars of HOPE community arts program. “Our mission is to create exponential hope and healing in this world by bringing people together following historic tragedy, to reassure them that they are not alone, and to remind them every day through these beautiful hand-painted Stars of HOPE that they are loved and not forgotten. SpeedyFreight was a critical partner in our successful mission by assisting us with the logistics with the hundreds of Stars of HOPE shipped from the United States to Manchester. SpeedyFreight and their staff were also extraordinarily generous with their time and resources in transporting our volunteers from Manchester to London and back in order to help us spread hope and healing throughout the impacted communities. SpeedyFreight was a key partner in the success of this special effort.”

“I was asked to be the UK link for the trip and Gary and Ian from Blackburn branch immediately stepped in to offer support. They allowed us to use their office for delivery of the stars then Ian generously provided a 7 seater vehicle to get the team to London so that stars could be taken to Grenfell Tower and sites of recent terror attacks. At Grenfell (pictured) we presented stars to members of the emergency response teams and the Salvation Army officer who looked after them on the first night – providing much need fluids and food within the cordon whilst the fire raged. They were all moved by the “survivor to survivor” message and speedyfreight was a massive part of this. Gary gave up his Sunday and from 6am until midnight the same day, worked tirelessly to look after us and transport us. Head office generously filled the vehicle with petrol so it was a real team effort by Speedy Freight!”
