DALLAS, April 29, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- After the January earthquake in Haiti, Monitronics employees were deeply concerned by the news of devastation from that country. In response, they organized multiple fundraisers in order to make a donation to the American Red Cross' relief efforts.
And fund-raise they did. The company matched dollar-for-dollar the donations and money earned from raffles, snack sales, and lunches. The result? In February, Monitronics donated a total of $18,484 to the Dallas chapter of the American Red Cross.
On Wednesday, a Red Cross representative presented the company with a certificate of appreciation. Pictured here, CEO and President Mike Haislip accepted the certificate from Assistant Director of Institutional Giving Emily H. Allbright.
"It was my pleasure to personally meet and thank Mr. Haislip and the amazing employees at Monitronics for their generosity for the relief efforts in Haiti," said Allbright. "It was a devastating disaster and because of support from companies such as Monitronics, the Red Cross is able to provide relief supplies and hope."
Haislip said that the company wanted to be a part of the solution.
"The Red Cross has helped more than two million people in Haiti since the earthquake three months ago and we wanted to be a part of those relief efforts," said Haislip. "Our employees showed their generous spirit and worked hard to raise the funds we donated."
