Zetron, its president and employees donated nearly $8K to the American Red Cross relief effort for victims of Typhoon Haiyan.Redmond, WA
December 6, 2013 – Zetron, a leading provider of mission-critical communication systems worldwide, just completed a fund drive that raised $7,890 for the American Red Cross relief effort to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan. The contributions include donations from Zetron employees and matching funds from both the company and Zetron president and CEO, Ellen O’Hara.
Typhoon Haiyan, which struck Southeast Asia in early November 2013, is the deadliest Philippine typhoon on record. It has killed at least 5,759 people in that country alone and has left millions displaced or homeless. Haiyan is also the strongest storm recorded at landfall, and the fourth strongest typhoon ever recorded, with wind speeds that reached 196 mph.
“As a company that is focused on emergency-response capabilities, we understand how important it is to help when such a catastrophic event occurs,” said O’Hara. “I’m proud to have been able to join with Zetron employees in their generous support of the American Red Cross and its efforts to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan.”
