May No Soldier Go Unloved
Classic is proud to help support this great program. Soldiers’ Angels provides aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families, and a growing veteran population.
Military families usually live on a very tight budget, so putting together a Christmas or other winter holiday celebration can be a real challenge for some of them—Soldiers’ Angels is already hearing from hundreds of families who could use a bit of help celebrating this year.
The goal in helping these military families is to show America’s gratitude with presents for the children and a grocery gift card or prepaid Visa gift card for them to purchase their holiday dinner and trimmings.

At Classic Transportation & Warehousing we believe in helping out in the community. The Kent County Road Commission is concerned about the environment and desires to maintain the natural beauty of its roadways. With the help from Classic Transportation & Warehousing, the roadways of Kent County are being kept free of litter and debris. Three times a year employees from Classic gather to clean up along 84th Street between Burlingame and Byron Center. This is just a small way of helping out in the community where we do business.
