How CLDA Supports Our Community
CLDA Cares is a community service program created to benefit the CLDA member companies, their families and personnel. This program is funded 100% by the CLDA, its members, vendors and affiliates and was created to help those in our industry in need.
There are two funds that are part of CLDA Cares service program:
Disaster Relief Fund
For those affiliated with our industry, the Disaster Relief Fund helps give a hand up during tough times.
This fund began in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey in 2017. The Category 4 hurricane caused more than $125 billion in damages and ranks as the second-most costly hurricane to hit the U.S. mainland since the early 1900s. Contributors donated more than $20,000 within days of being asked to help CLDA members affected by the storm. Eleven families who were employees, independent contractors and other members of our CLDA family were the beneficiaries of that initial effort.
Since the creation of this fund, we have been able to help dozens of CLDA members in need due to hurricanes, flooding and fires.

CLDA Scholarship Fund
The CLDA Scholarship Program was created in 2019 and offers the children of CLDA members an opportunity to expand their education after high school. This scholarship is available to any high school senior who is a dependent of someone with a company in good standing as a CLDA member. The student can be going to trade school, trucking school or college for any major.
The scholarships are funded by donations from members of the association, vendors and affiliates.
