The Industrial Supply Association (ISA) will donate $50,000 to the American Red Cross on behalf of its member companies to aid the relief effort following the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in the Southeast United States.
The association includes several member companies that operate in the region affected by the storm. Many homes and businesses of ISA member companies and their employees were damaged or destroyed by the storm and its aftereffects.
"The loss of life and property to individuals and businesses in the Gulf Coast is overwhelming. In some cases, people have lost their homes and their workplaces. Our hope is that this donation by ISA on behalf of its membership will help support the relief efforts and massive rebuilding projects that will be necessary in that part of the nation," said ISA president Tim Tevens. He added that several member companies and their employees are also donating cash and supplies to help in the relief effort.
"We encourage every ISA member to do what they can to help in this unparalleled natural disaster," he said. "The Red Cross is just one of several organizations working to provide relief. If ISA members wish to make an individual or corporate donation, they can do so by contacting the Red Cross at 1-800-HELP NOW (1-800-435-7669) or by visiting www.redcross.org."
ISA executive vice president John Buckley added that the magnitude of the storm and its devastation required an immediate response. "Everyone in our industry, locally and nationally, will be affected emotionally and financially. The ISA Board knew the membership would want us to act in such an immediate way," Buckley said.
The Industrial Supply Association is the leading association of the maintenance, repair, operations and production (MROP) supply chain. ISA's goal is to provide all members with services to help them increase sales, decrease expenses and increase profitability.
