Brandt | North Texas Tornado Relief
We are proud of the commitment Brandt’s employees show to families, friends, neighbors and communities. Never is it more apparent than in a time of need. This weekend’s tornadoes and flooding in North Texas have caused many employees to ask “How can I help?”
First, and most importantly, we are in the process of confirming that all of our people are safe, and we are working to meet the immediate needs of anyone affected by the storms.
Second, officials in the affected cities have requested that donations be made to Red Cross or The Salvation Army. This morning, Brandt donated to the local Red Cross, directed toward those affected by this event. We invite you to contribute to the local Red Cross or Salvation Army this week, and Brandt will match all employees’ contributions dollar for dollar. If you choose to donate online, simply provide HR with a copy of your donation receipt to initiate your matching gift. If you prefer, you can give cash or a check made out to the Red Cross or The Salvation Army directly to HR. At the end of this week, we will total the contributions and donate a second matching donation to the Red Cross.
- American Red Cross Disaster Relief: Donate online through the Red Cross website, or by texting REDCROSS to 90999.
