Anderson Pest Solutions has donated $2,500 towards relief efforts in Haiti through the American Red Cross and is matching Anderson team-member contributions on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to a further $5,000.  A major earthquake struck the island nation on January 13, leaving over 150,000 people dead and many more homeless and without food or medical supplies.
 
According to Mark O’Hara, president of Anderson, “We’re just trying to do our part to help the Haitian people in the aftermath of this terrible disaster. We think the American Red Cross is an outstanding organization and we’re glad to be able to contribute in this emergency.”

More than 430 Red Cross and Red Crescent workers from at least 30 countries are in Haiti supporting thousands of local volunteers. Of them, more than 100 represent the American Red Cross, including a group of Creole interpreters on board the USNS Comfort.  The relief operation in Haiti is already the largest single-country personnel deployment in global Red Cross history.

Information about contributions to the American Red Cross relief effort can be found at www.redcross.org.
