Volunteers and staff from the American Red Cross in the National Capital Region, the County Executive of Montgomery County, Maryland and the Regional President of AT&T celebrated AT&T’s $10,000 contribution to the American Red Cross in The National Capital Region for disaster relief efforts.
Linda Mathes, CEO of the American Red Cross in the National Capital Region, voiced her gratitude. “We are appreciative of this generous support from AT&T. This contribution will help men, women, and children across the region prepare for disasters and provide funds for our disaster response program. It is especially appropriate that we receive funding in September, which is National Preparedness Month.”
Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett expressed his enthusiasm about the donation. Leggett explained that the donation will help enhance the much-needed services that the American Red Cross in the National Capital Region provides Montgomery County residents during times of disasters, “but just as importantly, part of the donation will go toward preparedness, which is crucial to ensuring that residents get through emergency situations with minimal disruption.”
“AT&T has continuously strived to give back to the communities where their employees live and work. Emergency preparedness is central to AT&T’s operations in Maryland and even across the United States. We’re thrilled to help Red Cross in the National Capital Region support its mission to help our friends and neighbors in need,” said J. Michael Schweder, President of AT&T Mid Atlantic.
