Company donates $10K to help with winter storm recovery, encourages others to chip in.
In the wake of events from the recent Texas winter storm that left millions of people without power, heat, or running water, Endress+Hauser is helping Texans in need. The company’s Houston area employees worked together to select four local non-profit organizations, each of which Endress+Hauser will support with a donation of $2,500.
The Endress+Hauser team is standing with Texas and looks forward to assisting these organizations as they provide food and other essential resources for those still recovering.
"Kids' Meals is filled with gratitude for the generosity of Endress+Hauser in helping us recover from the devastation of the winter storm,” says Beth Braniff Harp, Chief Executive Officer, Kids’ Meals. “Their investment will help us get back on the road delivering free, healthy meals to more than 6,400 hungry children in underserved neighborhoods every weekday. This donation will help deliver 1,250 meals. We are thankful for their devotion to hungry children and their thoughtfulness in supporting our critical mission to end childhood hunger."
“BakerRipley exists to crush the inequities our community’s most vulnerable neighbors face every day, but especially in the wake of disaster. On an annual basis we support more than half-a-million people through a portfolio of programs aimed at building disaster resilience and socio-economic mobility,” relates David Haines, BakerRipley Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer. “Our efforts would not be possible without the commitment and support we receive from our partners and supporters. As the region battles through another crisis, this investment will further our efforts in helping the community recover.”
