Hunter Douglas has made a $350,000 donation to Team Rubicon, a volunteer disaster assistance nonprofit, and the Foothills Flood Relief Fund. Hunter Douglas matched donations from its employees, in effect tripling the employee donation.
President & CEO of Hunter Douglas North America, Marv Hopkins said, “On behalf of all Hunter Douglas employees throughout North America, I am honored to present these donations to these two nonprofits, which have been crucial to providing assistance to those affected by the Colorado flooding: the Foothills Flood Relief Fund, created by Foothills United Way in response to the devastation of the severe flooding in Boulder and Broomfield counties, and Team Rubicon, a veteran service organization.”
Foothills United Way president & CEO, Doug Yeiser said, “Hunter Douglas’s extraordinary gift is a powerful contribution to help those individuals and families still displaced or otherwise impacted by the historic flooding in September. This will be a long road to recovery, and Hunter Douglas’s contribution will go a long way.”
One hundred percent of the donation to the Foothills Flood Relief Fund will fund those individuals and families affected by the September flooding. The Long-Term Recovery Group will assess and respond to those individuals and families seeking financial assistance for unmet needs after FEMA and insurance claims have been administered.
