John Ryan Freight Services prides itself in giving support and assistance to groups and associations in the community that are in need of help -
4KQ Special Childrens Christmas Party
The aim is to provide in excess of 3,000 children with a day they will never forget. The children come from four major groups: Terminally ill, intellectually impaired, physically impaired and also the underprivileged who may be suffering from domestic violence or physical abuse. Children arrive from all over South East Queensland, from as far north as Maryborough, west to Roma and south to Tweed Heads. John Ryan Freight Services has been a proud sponsor of this annual event for the past 10 years.
2009 Victorian Bushfires
In 2009, John Ryan Freight Services answered the call by organising and collecting donations for the people of Victoria who were affected by the Bushfires. Weeks were spent receiving donations, sorting, palletising and finally sending a full B Double straight to the town of Callignee in Victoria where many homes were destoyed.
Lights on the Hill, Gatton, Queensland

John Ryan Freight Services participates in this annual event dedicated to the memories of those drivers.
