Freight Factoring Company Freight Capital Helps the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Victims

CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - Freight Capital employees, in just two short weeks contributed nearly $3,000 in donations to the earthquake victims of Japan. In turn, the freight factoring company matched the employee's charitable contributions, donating almost $6,000 to The American Red Cross. One hundred percent of these donations will go directly to the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief Fund.

"The Japanese people are close to many of our employees and I'm pleased with the eagerness to assist in the relief effort during their time of need," says Freight Capital President, John Downing.

The American Red Cross remains the leader in emergency response and Freight Capital was certain they could rely on them to assist the victims of this natural disaster. The Japanese division of the International Red Cross was one of the first responders on scene in Japan helping victims of the earthquake and resulting tsunami. "We're confident our contribution will go where it is needed most," Downing added.

Within the last month since the earthquake and tsunami hit, Japan has reeled from the tragedies including the loss of 25,000 people to the tsunami, several strong earthquake aftershocks, and high levels of toxic radiation contaminating the air, soil, and food supply.

"As the number one Freight Factoring Company in the United States, we continue looking for more ways to reach out to other communities," Downing stated.

In addition to the Japan contribution, Freight Capital employees participate in many community outreach programs such as the Mid-South Food Drive, Truck Driver Appreciation Day, and Oceanside SUN volunteer effort. Freight Capital employees have contributed to Toys for Tots, Haiti Earthquake Relief, and Soles4Souls.
