Huntington Ingalls Industries is donating $50,000 to the American Red Cross in support of its efforts to help in the recovery from Hurricane Harvey.
“We have 650 employees in Texas, and we want to help ensure they, and the hundreds of thousands of people affected by Hurricane Harvey, get the support they need in the storm’s aftermath,” said Mike Petters, HII’s president and CEO. “HII is proud to join other companies and thousands of private citizens in lending support to the relief effort.”
HII has also activated its American Red Cross “microsite” to facilitate employee donations directly to the relief fund. The microsite can be found here: https://www.redcross.org/donate/cm/huntingtoningalls-emp.
The American Red Cross is a not-for-profit humanitarian organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. Donations will help with ongoing efforts to mobilize volunteers, vehicles, food and relief supplies to those people impacted by the extreme weather.
