Hewlett Packard: A Trusted Red Cross Supporter
“I hope others will join HP and support the mission of the American Red Cross to prevent and alleviate human suffering around the world.” - Ashley Watson, Senior VP of Compliance and Ethics and Executive Director of the HP Company Foundation

Hewlett Packard Company (HP), a member of the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP), contributes $500,000 each year to support local and international disasters.

HP has been a supporter of the local and National Red Cross for nearly 20 years with cumulative contributions totaling about $16 million.

In 2013, HP invited the Silicon Valley and Santa Cruz County Chapters to participate in two different “ScopeAthons.”

The ScopeAthons allow the Red Cross to take advantage of the collective expertise of HP employees to develop creative solutions for critical chapter challenges, including both technological contributions and motivating people in the community to get prepared.

In August, HP hosted the employees of the Gateway to the Golden State Region at the 2nd annual staff retreat at the newly renovated corporate headquarters in Palo Alto.

“Supporting the American Red Cross and its vast network of partners provides HP with the peace of mind that the organization has the flexibility they need to respond whenever and wherever help is needed–no matter the continent, country, city, or village,” said Ashley Watson, Senior VP of Compliance and Ethics and Executive Director of the HP Company Foundation.

“I hope others will join HP and support the mission of the American Red Cross to prevent and alleviate human suffering around the world.”
