WERC Gives Back

Here are myriad ways to make the world a better place by harnessing the power of the supply chain. As an association, WERC makes an ongoing effort to support those in need by sharing requests for help from organizations such as the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) and Feeding America with our members and customers. Additionally, through local WERCouncils, WERC members frequently give back to their communities through volunteer activities, funding scholarships and more.  You'll find both opportunities to help and kudos for WERC members' philanthropy here.

Help Make a Difference!


The American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) was founded by several professional and trade associations who came together after Hurricane Katrina to help provide humanitarian relief. Today ALAN comprises hundreds of supply-chain businesses who stand poised to respond in the event of disasters. We are experts in transportation, warehousing, cold storage, and distribution, and we can help locate and move goods from suppliers to affected communities rapidly and efficiently. 

If you are able to donate space and/or transportation please contact Kathy at or submit your offer here:


Our mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger. We feed 46 million people at risk of hunger, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors. Learn more about how we get food to people in need in our "How We Work" section. Support Feeding America and help solve hunger. 

Feeding America is looking for donations of equipment to replace what is lost in flooding and natural disasters. If you think you can help contact Mark Biewald at


Our WERCouncils are committed to helping in their communities through grants for scholarships and supporting local causes. Volunteers are the backbone of WERC and our WERCouncils have made significant contributions to their communities.
