The American Red Cross Greater St. Louis Region is pleased to announce a $25,000 donation from Monsanto Company, in response to the recent tornadoes and storms that hit Illinois.
This generous gift from Monsanto Company allows the Red Cross to continue to bring emergency relief such as a warm, safe place to stay, hot meals and clean-up items to those affected, as well as help with longer-term recovery needs.
Monsanto has a long history of partnering with the American Red Cross to prepare for and respond to disasters both here at home and around the world. “A disaster can happen anywhere at any time, but the Red Cross is always there,” said Emer OBroin, Vice President of Environmental Safety and Health at Monsanto and member of the Red Cross Greater St. Louis Region’s Board of Directors. “This gift will allow the Red Cross to continue its work to help those in their darkest hour.”
“We are so thankful for Monsanto’s gift, and appreciative of their confidence in our mission,” said Cindy Erickson, Regional CEO of the Red Cross. “This donation from Monsanto Company means the Red Cross can continue to bring relief and comfort as our neighbors suffer from this terrible disaster.”
