St. Louis, MO – Charter is contributing $50,000 to the American Red Cross St. Louis Chapter to aid relief efforts following the damage caused by severe storms and tornados that hit the St. Louis area on Friday, April 22.
“St. Louis is our home and we are committed to helping bring relief to our friends and neighbors. Charter teams were in affected neighborhoods immediately following the storm, and we’ve safely installed thousands of feet of temporary cable and restored customers’ service at a remarkable pace,” said John Higgins, Jr., Charter’s Vice President and General Manager in Missouri. “We are proud to be part of a community where companies step-up at times like this to provide assistance. Crews restoring power and Charter’s technical teams worked tirelessly to restore services. And the American Red Cross has done an outstanding job in all they’ve done thus far to help those whose lives have been uprooted by this tornado.”
“The Red Cross is grateful for the support of corporate partners like Charter, who are critical to the ability of the Red Cross to help people in their time of need,” said Cindy Erickson, Regional Chief Executive Officer for the St. Louis Area Chapter. “We appreciate Charter’s confidence in the mission of the American Red Cross.”
The American Red Cross St. Louis Area Chapter continues to provide shelter, food, clothing, damage assessment and casework for families who have been displaced from their homes due to the storms. Trained damage assessment teams are currently in North St. Louis county and other neighborhoods meeting with families to assess needs, provide clean-up supplies and food, and continue to provide assistance as the recovery continues in the weeks and months ahead.
