In response to the damaging floods that took place in the Bayou-Lafayette region of Louisiana and other recent catastrophes that have devastated several areas of the country, Legrand North America has set up a relief fund through the Red Cross. Legrand’s donation to the Red Cross will help provide food, shelter, and comfort to those affected by major storms, fires, and other natural disasters that occur across the United States.
Over the next 90 days, Legrand employees are encouraged to make donations to the Red Cross, and the company will match employee contributions up to a total of $100,000, with a minimum corporate donation of $50,000.
“We recognize the importance of companies like ours to help provide significant assistance to the people and regions affected by such devastating events,” said Alessandra Adnani, data quality manager and Legrand better communities committee leader. “Our employees share a sense of responsibility to come together and assist the Red Cross in helping all communities recover and rebuild as quickly as possible.”
The Red Cross responds to nearly 66,000 disasters per year—including single-family and apartment home residents, and citywide crisis. One of their most recent relief operations launched in Louisiana, is anticipated to cost at least $30 million. As a 501(c)(3) public charity, the American Red Cross relies on the support of generous Americans to fulfill its mission.
