The American Red Cross responds immediately to more than 70,000 disasters each year, including house or apartment fires (the majority of disaster responses), hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, hazardous material spills, transportation accidents, explosions and other natural and man-made disasters.
The American Red Cross has been extremely valuable to Highmark and our residents when faced with unfortunate disasters in our communities. Highmark Residential is proud to support The American Red Cross by encouraging volunteer efforts and donations to this worthy organization.
Highmark has designated the month of May to be our fundraising month for the American Red Cross. Each May Highmark associates will be given the opportunity to contribute to the American Red Cross via payroll deductions.
As a Ready 365 partner, Highmark Residential continued this year with its annual partnership supporting the Red Cross Home Fire Preparedness campaign ( a life-saving initiative that is making communities safer all across the nation). ) Additionally the company activated its co-branded Red Cross microsite to raise money from employees – with a generous corporate match to support Hurricane Dorian disaster relief.
In 2019, Highmark Residential was able to contribute $7,035 to the Home Fire Preparedness campaign and $5,570 to the Hurricane Dorian campaign
