Salem, NH, June 11, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Last year, ALPCO donated to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief efforts, as well as the 2011 Massachusetts Tornado relief fund. With help from the donations made by ALPCO and other corporate supporters, as well as individuals throughout the country, the American Red Cross was able to provide aid to those affected by these tragedies last year.
In a press release, Maria White, Chief Executive Officer, NH Region said, “The donations of people in New Hampshire and across the country to the American Red Cross have been critical in moving Japan from a state of disaster relief to recovery and rebuilding.”
On May 29, 2012, American Red Cross Chief Development Officer, Stephanie Couturier, presented ALPCO’s President, Sean Conley, with a plaque of recognition for the company’s generous donations to the American Red Cross in 2011.
“We rely on contributions from individuals, foundations, and organizations such as ALPCO to prepare for, respond to, and provide relief during times of disaster, and our work would not be possible without those contributions,” said Couturier.
In reaction to the recognition, Mr. Conley said, “ALPCO takes great pride in being able to help those in need where and when we can through great organizations like the American Red Cross. We find ourselves fortunate to be involved in an industry that plays a daily role in furthering clinical research, eventually leading to better healthcare and clinical outcomes. But as global events unfold that we have a lesser impact on, we’re proud to play at least a minor role in supporting organizations and efforts like those that the Red Cross can serve.”
