Following Hurricane Harvey, Automation Service committed to donate 2% of all revenue from remanufactured products shipped to Texas & Louisiana between September 1 and the end of 2017 to the Red Cross. In addition to that commitment, Automation Service has decided to forgo their normal holiday cards and gifts to their clients and instead make an additional donation to the Red Cross Harvey Relief Fund.
On Dec. 19, Barbara James, Regional Philanthropy Officer of American Red Cross Eastern Missouri, visited Automation Service in Earth City, MO to receive a check for $15,000.
“It is our belief that this donation will be far more meaningful to those in need and we believe that our clients will be able to celebrate being part of that donation,” said Stan Carr, President of Automation Service. “We know that those areas affected by Harvey have a long road to recovery ahead, but we also know that the strength of the American spirit is revealed through adversity.”
At the time of the last update, the Red Cross had authorized more than $229 million in direct financial assistance to households severely affected by Hurricane Harvey, and applications continue to be processed. Additionally, the Red Cross is spending an estimated $45 million on sheltering, meals, relief supplies, health and mental health services.
Carr said, “Automation Service is proud to be part of the relief efforts of the Red Cross in Texas and Louisiana. We have many customers and friends in the Gulf region and we are doing everything that we can to make a difference for those affected by the storm,”
