DENSO today announced its philanthropic group DENSO North America Foundation (DNAF) has donated $50,000 to the American Red Cross to support relief efforts in states recently affected by extreme winter storms and power outages. For those who are interested and able, you can make your own donation to the American Red Cross through DENSO’s disaster relief microsite: https://www.redcross.org/donate/cm/denso-emp.html/.
The $50,000, which is sourced from the foundation’s endowment, will be used toward recovery activities in Texas, Arkansas and Tennessee, as well as general disaster assistance. With DENSO locations in these states, the grant is an extension of the company’s belief in giving back to the places it calls home, especially in times of great need.
While some DENSO sites have been forced to adjust operations due to the storms, the company continues to meet customer demand, in large part because of its employees’ DENSO Spirit, flexibility and perseverance.
At the same time, DENSO understands this inclement weather has put added strain on its employees and their loved ones. As a result, DENSO leaders at affected sites and the North American headquarters remain in close contact to ensure the company’s locations and employees have the support necessary to stay safe and continue their work effectively.
Providing disaster relief is central to DNAF’s mission, and the foundation has donated previously to tornado response efforts in Nashville and Osceola, Arkansas. DNAF is also dedicated to helping students advance their education in science, technology, engineering, math and other related programs, providing grants to colleges and universities throughout North America. Such grants give them skills to grow their careers and technical industries a more knowledgeable workforce.
