Brown Dog Carriers Offering “A Helping Paw” to Aid COVID-19 Response 

April 2020

BIDDEFORD, ME…  Brown Dog Carriers, a purpose-driven carrier and logistics company based in Biddeford, has launched “A Helping Paw,” a community call to action campaign aimed at organizing efforts to deliver essential services and supplies to Mainers in need and help where possible in the response to COVID-19.

“Now more than ever, people are relying on truck drivers to transport food, water, fuel and other essentials to stores and medical facilities on the front lines of the COVID-19 response, so we're doing everything we can to keep trucks rolling and shelves stocked while maintaining safe driving standards and social distancing to protect the health of our team,” said Greg Morin, president of Brown Dog Carriers. 

With this campaign, Brown Dog seeks to connect with Maine companies, organizations and individuals producing PPE, donating food or supplies, or making other contributions to the COVID-19 response, to explore opportunities to make a bigger impact together. If you are a business, organization or individual in need of shipping or transportation for your donations to the COVID-19 response, please contact Graig Morin (207-294-2075) or email [email protected] 

“Recently, we volunteered to transport 125 folding chairs donated by Hussey Seating Company to Southern Maine Healthcare and Maine Veterans’ Homes. That got us thinking that we have both an opportunity and a responsibility to help. If we can use our equipment and experience to enable and bring attention to our community partners doing incredible things, so that they can serve more people, we’re committed to doing that,” said Darrell Pardy, Director of Brown Dog Carriers.  

Throughout the year, Brown Dog Carriers supports a number of nonprofits and veteran service organizations doing good in the community, including Wreaths Across America, K9s on the Front Line, and Trucking 4 Kids.
