Established in 2022

Acklie Charitable Foundation (“ACF”) established the Acklie Companies Employee Emergency Fund. The Fund is designed to provide short-term financial assistance to employees experiencing severe financial hardship as a result of certain unforeseen and unpreventable circumstances. Employees of all the Acklie Companies – Crete Carrier Corporation, Shaffer Trucking, Hunt Transportation, Electronic Contracting, and Capitol Casualty – are eligible to apply to the Fund if they are facing a qualifying emergency and cannot afford housing, utilities, and other basic living expenses.

Our employees have always been the greatest asset and the key to the success of the Acklie Companies. Living by Crete Carrier’s Principle #5 – Be the Best – means hiring the best employees and taking care of them so they are able to lead the company to deliver the exceptional service for our customers. Even when you put safety first and foremost and take no shortcuts, unforeseen emergencies can happen in our lives. This Fund enables ACF to provide financial support to employees of the Acklie Companies when they are facing extreme hardship.

The Acklie Companies Employees Fund is independently administered by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a public charity. Employees can confidentially apply for assistance when facing a hardship. Additionally, the Fund allows employees of the Acklie Companies, and their friends and family, the opportunity to participate in this effort by making a tax-deductible contribution to the Fund in support of members of the Acklie Companies who may experience such a hardship. Every donation, no matter the amount, is appreciated.
