Local Head Start group to visit in December

York, PA. November 1, 2016. Seventeen children will visit S&H Express’s Broad/State Street offices on Thursday, December 15 for a pizza party and gifts. Employees of S&H Express purchase toys, clothing, and other gifts, which are packed into book bags, backpacks and duffle bags and distributed to the children. Educational supplies and materials such as construction paper, puzzles, books, crayons, and art supplies are also collected and donated to the children’s classroom.

“The party flies by. The children eat lots of pizza and tear open their gifts. They all want to sit in a truck and blow the horn. Then, before you know it, they’re leaving,” explains Kendra Nealon, Director of Recruiting and Retention for S&H Express. Nealon and co-worker Tyrone Snellings have coordinated the event for several years and have seen an increase in the number of children served.

Early Head Start/Head Start of York County is a federal and state-funded program that promotes school readiness for children under 5 years of age who are from low-income families. The Head Start program began 1965 as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society Campaign and is one of the longest-running programs attempting to address the effects of systemic poverty in the US. The program offers education, nutrition, health, social, and other services. Early Head Start/Head Start of York County currently serves 650 children.

If you would like to sponsor a child, please write your name on the sign-up sheet at the Night Dispatch Desk at Broad/State Street or you may bring classroom supplies directly to Nealon or Snellings.

The new location offers a larger maintenance facility, a wash bay, on-site fueling and, overall, a better location for current drivers and management.

Florida Office Opens

York, PA. July, 2015.  S&H Express and the Shellenberger Family of Companies opened a full-service satellite office in St. Petersburg, FL.

Rich Rohn, Director of Southeastern Operations and Sales, explains “the St. Petersburg office staff have more than 100 years of combined experience in hauling general freight, frozen, refrigerated, heavy haul and over-dimension loads. We are able to utilize all of the Shellenberger Family Companies when meeting the needs of clients.” The St. Petersburg staff’s experience in the trucking and transportation industry was tested almost immediately when Hurricane Erika threatened South Florida in late August.

S&H Express’s Florida office was able to respond quickly, earning kudos from grateful clients. Rich Rohn can be reached by calling toll free 866-610-2151. Local calls can be made to 727-350-0369.

Daughter of Employee Receives Charles S. Wolf Service Above Self Award

York, PA. June 2015.  In August 2014, Lindsay Wood, a college student and the daughter of S&H Express employee Lisa Dietz, ended an unremarkable Monday evening shift at a local restaurant. Then she saved the life of a young man injured in a motorcycle accident. Lindsay doesn’t have special training. She will tell you that she did what anyone would do in the same situation. We know that isn’t the case. And, members of the Rotary Club of York know it too. On June 3, 2015, Lindsay received a standing ovation as Rotarian and S&H Express Chairman Steve Shellenberger presented her with Rotary’s Charles S. Wolf Service Above Self Award to recognize her remarkably unselfish care for others.

Steve Shellenberger addresses the loss of Rich Antrim

York, PA. November 7, 2014.  It is with the deepest sense of sadness that I share with you the news of my dear friend Rich Antrim’s passing this past Friday evening. Rich and I spent most of the day together on Friday visiting our Landis operation in Reading with Dave Lynch. We came back to York and Rich left for his hunting camp in Wellsboro, PA. His brother, who lives in the area, found his body in the woods next to his tree stand. The feeling at this point is that he had a heart attack. Rich and I were friends and business associates for just over 40 years. Memories of our time together – through good and bad – will be with me for the rest of my days. As a matter of information, in addition to my present position as Chairman and CEO of the Shellenberger Family of Companies, I will now take on the position of President. I have asked Dave Lynch to assume a greater role within the organization. Dave has been a Board member the last five years and recently took on the responsibility of managing the Landis Express operation under the guidance of Rich Antrim. In addition to oversight of Landis Express, Dave will become Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer effective immediately. Dave will continue to take on additional responsibilities within the organization as he transitions out of other professional obligations that he currently has. I am fortunate and blessed to have the strength and dedication of Senior Management, as well as every employee of the Shellenberger Family of Companies. We will pull through this painful time, and as a tribute to Rich’s memory, we will continue to build an organization that would make him proud. Thank you all for your support during these times.
