On June 19th, Bossier Parish Schools donated 7,000 textbooks and other teacher materials to the school district in Moore, Oklahoma, which suffered from devastating tornadoes earlier this year. Tango Transport is committed to helping others in the community when the opportunity arises, and when it learned of Bossier Schools’ plan for getting the much-needed textbooks and materials to Moore, Oklahoma, Tango readily agreed to provide the transportation. It is a worthwhile project for all involved, and without hesitation, Tango was more than ready to lend their support. Many Bossier elementary school teachers and Resource Center employees prepared the books for shipment. Thirty-six pallets filled with the much needed materials were loaded onto the Tango truck early Wednesday morning (June 19th) and arrived at the Moore Schools Warehouse on Friday morning (June 21st). It was very touching to see all the messages written on the boxes encouraging the residents of Moore, Oklahoma that they are in our thoughts and prayers. Always amazing to see communities like this gathering together to help others in their time of need. Many, many thanks goes out to the Bossier Parish Schools for their compassion to help other communities and for letting Tango Transport be apart of helping them “pay it forward”.  (7 photos)

On Friday, May 20th 2011 Tango Transport visited the Bossier City Fire Department (BCFD) to meet one of their Search and Rescue dogs in training, Duke and to donate to their cause. Here is a story from KTBS.com following our visit. The Bossier City Fire Department’s new K-9 Search and Rescue Team has received a generous donation of $2,000 from Tango Transport, a local trucking firm. Chris Gorman, Executive Vice President of Tango Transport initially presented a check for $1000 on Friday to the team at Fire Station 6 on Riverside Drive. The donation will be used to fund veterinary costs, food and other supplies for the team. Upon seeing one of the K-9’s in action during a demonstration following the check presentation, Chris Gorman personally presented a second check to the team for another $1,000. The BCFD K-9 Search and Rescue Team consists of Duke, a two-year old black Labrador Retriever, and handler Ashton Poole and Aspen, a one-year old Golden Retriever, and handler Kevin Bragg. Firefighters Poole and Bragg initiated the process of forming the team in late 2009 and purchased their dogs through private donations. They eventually raised enough funding to train Duke and Aspen in a number of search and rescue disciplines. The K-9’s have been going through that training over the past several months. The team’s national certification will be finalized next month and will make it ready to assist the Bossier City Fire Department and other local emergency response agencies with search and rescue calls in various environments including water and wooded areas. The team will also be able to assist in locating missing persons and human remains. The team operates on private donations under non-profit status. Donations can be made by calling Bragg at (318) 349-2080.  (10 photos)

On October 23rd, Music Mountain Water Driver Jonathan Thomas volunteered to help out the Shreveport Opera by delivering their sets to the Riverview Theatre in downtown Shreveport, LA. The sets were for their upcoming performance of Don Giovanni - an opera that first debuted in 1787 in Prague. While the opera’s story is full of drama, the pick-up and delivery was not -- due to the professionalism of Driver Jonathan Thomas and Logistics Coordinator Jason Trammell. Jonathan Thomas has been with Tango since 2006 and his experience showed as he flawlessly navigated a tricky loading dock at the Riverview Theatre. The Director of the show, Dean Anthony, who built the sets himself, was impressed with Jonathan’s maneuvers. After the show wrapped, Jonathan gave an encore performance by picking up and delivering the sets back to the Shreveport Opera’s warehouse. Thank you Jonathan and Jason for making this a success!  (5 photos)

On Friday, June 18th, Tango Transport donated the use of one of our tractors to help deliver pre-fabricated wall units and paneling to a Fuller Center for Housing home site in Haughton, LA. The wall units had previously traveled from Cincinnati to Minden, LA to be used in the Red, White, and Blue Build of July of 2008. They were not used in the Minden project, so they were safely stored at Camp Minden, the National Guard facility, until they could be used to frame a future home. These wall units were assembled in Ohio with love and care, which is seen in the inspirational messages written on the wood. There were over 25 volunteers at Camp Minden that helped load the Tango trailer in a few hours. Tango Driver, Alton Chenault, volunteered for the pick up and delivery, which turned out to be quite an adventure into the woods! The remote home site is tucked in the forest along a curvy 1.5-mile single-lane gravel road. Alton took great care and patience to deliver the load safely. He is no stranger to assisting Habitat for Humanity (partner of The Fuller Center) – as he was a part of a demo team that tore down a whole city block in Shreveport. “Tango has been good to us,” said Fuller Center Director, Charlie Park. Alton let Charlie know that we’ll do as much as we can when he said, “Anytime, we’re happy to help.” The homeowner-to-be, Karen, was there to help unload the much anticipated building supplies. She, along with many volunteers, will begin the construction of her home in July. The Fuller Center for Housing of Northwest Louisiana was founded in 2005. The overall benefit of this program is that home-ownership is created for individuals that otherwise would never experience the American Dream of owning a home. Alton and Tango are proud to assist in a project that will help a Northwest Louisiana resident experience the joy of owning a home and begin the process of improving their quality of life.

June 25, 2009: Students at Midway Elementary Professional Development School in Shreveport, La. learned about traveling in America thanks to a teddy bear named Tango Ted. Jessica Hall, second grade teacher, created the idea of Tango Ted riding along with a Tango driver. Hall worked with Tango’s staff to plot a journey for Tango Ted and driver Rich Arrington, truck no. 8108. The trip included driving through Missouri, Memphis, Mississippi, Florida and other states. Along the way, Arrington took pictures of Tango Ted at the various places they visited and made notes of the sights they saw. Arrington then brought Tango Ted back to the students and told them about the trip.  (6 photos)

In 1991, the father-and-son team of Robert E. and BJ Gorman established Tango Transport. The company started with two company trucks, two owner operators and seven employees. Tango was initially founded as a flatbed carrier, but the first two trucks leased by the Gormans were reefer carriers, and they didn’t have any headache racks. The Gormans didn’t have the resources to get the racks, so they exchanged them for two vans.   (10 photos)

October 28, 2006: Tango Transport and local businesses hosted a Toys For Tots Motorcycle Ride to help the Marines launch their annual toy drive.
