We deliver for our communities.

Giving back to the communities we work in is part of our DNA. And we encourage our employees to help others in any way they can. 

In Canada, our employees took it upon themselves to create Purolator Tackle Hunger – an initiative that has delivered more than 13 million pounds of food to needy families since 2003. With our expertise in logistics and distribution, we work with local, regional and not-for-profit organizations, such as Food Banks Canada, to provide both food and financial support. On top of that, we have donated 20 refurbished curbside delivery vehicles to food banks and food organizations across Canada.

In the U.S., Purolator Gives Back (PGB) is a way for us to help out the many communities we serve through volunteer service and company donations. Purolator International also matches employee donations to the causes we support.

Our commitment to the environment has led us to develop the first fully electric delivery truck prototype in the industry and to have the largest hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) fleet of any freight and package provider in North America.

It’s all about delivering a better tomorrow.

Tackle Hunger

Most Canadians are fortunate to enjoy an exceptional quality of life. However, did you know that in 2019 food banks saw an average of 1.1 million visits per month? One third of these people are children. Right here in Canada.

In 2003, Purolator employees decided to take action by creating Purolator Tackle Hunger – an initiative that’s all about people helping people. Since then, this employee-lead grassroots initiative has helped deliver more than 13 million pounds of food to families across the country.

But there are more Canadians to feed and more meals to deliver.

We can’t tackle hunger alone. We invite you to join us in the Purolator Tackle Hunger program. After all, even one family struggling to put food on the table is one family too many.
