Making a difference to those in need, Nelipak employees are raising funds to help those impacted by the recent storms.
Recent hurricanes have devastated the Houston, Texas, Caribbean Islands, and Florida areas. These regions have been hit with record-setting rainfall in a relatively short period of time, which has resulted in unprecedented flooding, disruption to families, and loss of life. There is a desperate need to support people impacted by the storms with donations of food, water, shelter, blood, and obviously funds to help them recover.
In response to these extreme circumstances, Nelipak is contributing help to alleviate the suffering and distress experienced by those living through these harrowing conditions.
Staff are supporting this worthy cause through donations and /or raising funds through:
• Donation boxes in central, high traffic locations in all facilities
• Local in-house fundraising events, proceeds of which will be contributed to the cause.
As part of this effort, the company will match any monetary donation dollar for dollar up to $5,000. Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 for the victims of these terrible storms. We are pulling to together to support those affected by the devastation by demonstrating that “Nelipak Cares!”
We also want to pass along a cautious reminder about responding to email requests for donations. The FTC issued an alert warning consumers to be on the lookout for scams and Krebs on Security reports that hundreds of new websites using “hurricane”, “Harvey” and “Irma” have been registered in the last few days. Should you wish to make a personal
donation do so to recognized reputable charity organizations such as the American Red Cross.
