GlobeNewswire Thursday, 29 November 2018
Announces partnership with Wreaths Across America

JOHNS CREEK, Ga., Nov. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saia, Inc. (NASDAQ: SAIA) is pleased to honor members of our nation’s military in events being held this month in recognition of Veteran’s Day and in December. As a sponsor of the Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team (WWAFT), Saia salutes service members who took on alumni of the Green Bay Packers and NFL in a halftime exhibition game held during festivities at Lambeau Field during the Green Bay Packers-Miami Dolphins game.“We are thrilled to be able to assist WWAFT in their mission to showcase the determination and talents of our nation’s wounded warriors,” stated Saia Vice President of Human Resources Michelle Richard. “Our veterans and their families are to be commended for the sacrifices they’ve made on behalf of our country. We owe them all a tremendous debt of gratitude.”

WWAFT, which is made up of veterans who use a prosthetic device to engage in everyday life activities, visits various cities across the country to play exhibition games with current and retired professional athletes to emphasize the fact that all veterans are able to contribute at home, excel in the workplace and continue to be great patriots and ambassadors for the U.S. By showcasing team members on the football field, the WWAFT seeks to inspire fans and highlight the perseverance of both active and former service members who continue to face life’s challenges without excuses.

“Outside of our sponsorship of WWAFT, Saia is also partnering with Wreaths Across America (WAA) again this year,” explained Richard. “On December 15, Saia employees and their families will participate in our first-ever National Day of Service. The event coincides with National Wreath Laying Day and will be an opportunity for our team members to assist in laying wreaths at one of more than 1,400 veterans’ cemeteries located around the country.”

Saia is proud to support the missions of both WWAFT and WAA as they work to honor those who served in our nation’s military and remember our fallen U.S. veterans.
