Lazer charitable foundation receives $100,000 donation

Lazer Logistics is pleased to announce that the Board members and EQT have approved a donation of $100,000 from Lazer Logistics to the Lazer Foundation to support the Foundation’s work of empowering Lazer employees in communities where we serve to enhance health, support family stability, and overcome financial hardship. In addition, under the leadership of Chairman Michael Moore, board members Gerard Gibbons, Crosby Cook, Sean Pierce, Marie Robinson, and Kevin Shuba made personal gifts and have contributed another $5,000 to the Foundation.

Lazer Logistics CEO Adam Newsome said, “The board’s generous donations come on top of the $12,900 that was given in memory of Wes Newsome, one of our founding partners, over the same time period. Our family is so grateful for the gifts of friends and family, who recognize that the Foundation is exactly the kind of project Dad would have gotten behind.” Wes, who passed away on January 26, is the father of Adam and Lazer Vice President Stefanie Newsome and brother of COO Phil Newsome.

The Lazer Foundation was founded in 2020 as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization to benefit Lazer employees, former employees, and family members. Our mission is to empower individuals in the communities we serve to enhance health, support family stability, and overcome financial hardship. Grants are intended as gifts, and repayment is not expected.

In 2023:

• 73 employees contributed to the Foundation through weekly payroll deductions, ranging from $1 to $100.
• 15 families received air grants.
• The Foundation awarded $66,384.00 in grants to help families overcome extraordinary circumstances and help them pay for everyday needs such as food, rent, and utilities.

The Lazer Foundation is just one example of our values and commitment to families. At Lazer, when you are here, you are family.
