Supporting Disaster Relief One Donation at a Time
[Dallas, Texas] – As a family-owned wholesaler, City Electric Supply invests in its employees and their communities during the best and worst times, just like any family would. Throughout September, the Bahamas and many cities along the east coast were damaged by Hurricane Dorian and Tropical Storm Imelda.
With so many branches and employees affected by these natural disasters, CES decided they wanted to show their support and help those impacted by the recent storms through a $50,000 corporate donation to the American Red Cross.
“We have such a strong presence of branches in areas that are highly hurricane-prone. We have already seen a couple of very powerful storms this year, and it’s still early in the season,” said Thomas Hartland-Mackie, CEO and President of City Electric Supply. “Our employees are what make this company special, and their investment in their communities is who we are.”
CES donates to many charitable causes annually, many of which are close to the hearts of its employees. With so much devastation in the aftermath of both storms, it is important to company leadership that those in a position to help make it a priority.
“Please donate, volunteer, or help in any way. It’s our neighbors, our family members, and our communities that are impacted in these situations,” Hartland-Mackie said.
The partnership between City Electric Supply and the American Red Cross rose from a desire to help serve these impacted communities, and it’s important that those affected by natural disasters receive the relief they need to keep moving forward.
“City Electric Supply is a great partner of the American Red Cross, having supported multiple disaster relief operations since 2017,” said Keith Rhodes, CEO of American Red Cross North Texas. “The support we have received from City Electric Supply has helped the Red Cross provide assistance to hundreds of families impacted by disaster. We are thankful for the generous donations from City Electric Supply and their ongoing support of the humanitarian mission of the Red Cross.”
