Capgemini donates $50,000 to Red Cross for Joplin recovery
Capgemini US made a $50,000 donation to the Greater Ozarks Chapter of the American Red Cross to aid with recovery efforts in Joplin, MO and neighboring communities.
“Capgemini’s generous support will enable the Greater Ozarks Chapter of the Red Cross to continue its long-term recovery efforts in Joplin,” said Debi Meeds, regional chief executive officer, Red Cross Greater Ozarks Chapter. “We are grateful for Capgemini’s donation and touched by their concern for the community of Joplin.”
The Red Cross coordinated disaster relief immediately after the tornado, which touched down on May 22, but has transitioned from disaster relief to long-term recovery, providing disaster recovery assistance to Joplin through a localized Resource Center. The center is made possible through contributions like the one provided by Capgemini, and will provide health services, mental health assistance, and recovery case management to the community.
“Capgemini not only serves customers in Missouri, but also has nearly 150 employees who call Missouri home,” said Lanny Cohen, chief executive officer, Capgemini US LLC. “We have a long and great history operating across the state. As such, we care about the well-being of all our friends and colleagues in Missouri, and know that as the nation’s premier emergency response organization, the American Red Cross will be by their side throughout the recovery process. This donation is just one of the ways we can show our solidarity and continued support for Missouri and the city of Joplin.”
