WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Legrand North and Central America announced that its disaster-relief fundraiser for the American Red Cross will make a total contribution of $65,175. All proceeds will be directed to individuals and regions affected by Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael. 2018 marks the third consecutive year Legrand has sponsored a Red Cross fundraiser with employees making personal contributions incentivized by a company match up to $50,000.
“Year after year, our employees have gone above and beyond in demonstrating an unwavering commitment to helping those impacted by these tragic natural disasters. We recognize that generous individual contributions, including those at Legrand, are invaluable in these recovery efforts and are happy to be able to give back to those in need,” stated John Selldorff, President and CEO, Legrand North and Central America.
The Red Cross responds to nearly 66,000 disasters per year—ranging from single-family disasters to city- and region-wide crises. As a 501(c)(3) public charity, the American Red Cross relies on the support of generous Americans to fulfill its mission.
“Our Red Cross fundraiser is just one element of our broader Better Communities program in which we provide a platform for our employees to donate their time and talents to help those in need in their local areas,” added Alyssa Adnani, Data Quality Manager and Better Communities Leader, Legrand North and Central America.Tagged with charity, Legrand
