Grainger is a leading distributor of facilities maintenance products. Service and reliability are at the core of Grainger’s business and at the heart of the company’s commitment to disaster preparedness and response. Grainger’s involvement with the American Red Cross began as a way to leverage Grainger employees’ passion for community service and commitment to volunteerism, as well as the company’s strengths in logistics, supply chain and distribution.
Since 2001, Grainger has provided nearly $14 million to support the American Red Cross. Grainger is the national founding sponsor of the Ready When the Times Comes™ volunteer programs in the United States and Canada. More than 1,500 Grainger team members are trained as Red Cross disaster volunteers. Grainger is also the national launch sponsor of Volunteer Connection, a next-generation volunteer management system helping the American Red Cross to communicate, track and mobilize its volunteers across the country.
Now, as a supporter of the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program, Grainger is proud to join an esteemed group of leading corporations that fund American Red Cross relief efforts before disaster strikes. Through our ongoing partnership and dedication to volunteerism and preparedness, together we will be ready when the time comes.
