RedPrairie Corporation, a global leader in supply chain technology solutions that enable business process transformation, today presented the Red Cross with a cheque for $61,921 to help Gulf Coast victims of devastating hurricane Katrina. Employees donated half the amount and the company matched their contributions. Kathy Fargo, Chief Public Support Officer for the Red Cross, accepted the donation which will be used for immediate emergency needs of food, shelter and clothing for hurricane victims.
We are so touched by the outpouring of people coming together and raising money to help others. This is the largest disaster relief effort in the history of the Red Cross, and we truly need all the help we can get. Its generosity like the folks at RedPrairie that keep the efforts going and make such a difference in the lives of the victims, said Fargo.
RedPrairie Company Leader John Jazwiec comments, We encourage our employees to participate in community service, and we give all employees two volunteer days per year to participate in a charity that is close to their heart. We all felt strongly that we needed to help the victims of hurricane Katrina. Employees were eager to help and asked about putting together a group donation. The company agreed to match employee donations dollar for dollar, and we were thrilled with the generous level of giving. People really dug deep to help those affected and I am proud to work with such a kind-hearted, giving group.
