Louis Berger's Give Back Campaign raises $60,000 to support Red Cross / Red Crescent disaster relief efforts

MORRISTOWN, N.J., Dec. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Louis Berger presented a contribution of $60,000 to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies last week. The company’s annual Give Back campaign, originally scheduled for October, was started early in the month of August to support people affected by this season’s hurricane events in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

“Our Give Back Campaign is part of Louis Berger’s corporate social responsibility program that is committed to serving and giving back to the communities where our employees and clients live and work,” said Jim Stamatis, Louis Berger CEO. “Partnering with Red Cross / Red Crescent provides the opportunity for our employees across the globe to utilize the employer match through a single, global partner.” 

Through the campaign, employee donations are matched dollar-for-dollar through the Berger Charitable Foundation to support select organizations whose missions align with the firm’s global values and mission. Louis Berger has a long track record supporting communities in their recovery and rebuilding efforts following major disasters. Previous Give Back Campaigns supported relief efforts for the Louisiana flood, Superstorm Sandy, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, the Nepal Earthquake, and the West Africa Ebola outbreak.

In addition to its charitable contributions, Louis Berger has deployed more than 900 staff and contractors to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to support the U.S. government’s emergency response mission to bring much needed manpower, equipment, and supplies to the hurricane-devastated islands.
