CA Technologies Supports Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts
ISLANDIA, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
CA Technologies (News - Alert) (NASDAQ: CA) today announced employee and company
contributions to the American
Red Cross relief efforts in support of Hurricane Sandy have totaled
more than $200,000 to date.
"Hurricane Sandy devastated lives and entire communities, and the Red
Cross is so grateful for CA Technologies and its employees for stepping
up to help us bring much-needed relief," said Neal Litvack, Chief
Development Officer at the American Red Cross. "With CA Technologies
generous and timely support, the Red Cross has provided food, water,
shelter, relief supplies and health care, and we'll continue to be there
as those hardest hit take the difficult steps toward recovery."
While much of the East Coast still recovers from the damage the super
storm left in its wake, CA Technologies employees rallied together to
help neighbors, colleagues and affected communities.
"The culture at CA Technologies begins and ends with helping others,"
said Bill McCracken, CEO, CA Technologies. "Many of our East Coast-based
employees were affected by Hurricane Sandy, yet they still came out to
support others in need. I am very proud of their commitment to our
community and to each other."
CA Technologies and its employees have been active volunteers in
disaster relief efforts since the storm hit. In Long Island and New York
City, for example employees held food drives for Island
Harvest; collected clothing for New
York Cares; scheduled blood drives for the , and donated toys to children affected by the
hurricane through Family-to-Family
and the Salvation Army Angel Tree program.
"We were all blown away by the enormity of the situation and wanted
to get out there to do whatever we could to help. As usual, our
colleagues stepped up to the plate quickly to lend a hand, assisting the
American Red Cross in affected communities by providing comfort kits.
While it was heartbreaking to see firsthand the challenges people faced,
it felt good to do something to make a real difference." - Pouya
Khani, senior director, HR Operations, CA Technologies, Islandia.
Employees also participated in a Day
of Action for New York, a volunteer project to assist with clean-up
efforts organized by the Clinton
Foundation and Clinton
Global Initiative and received a special thanks for joining
President and Chelsea Clinton to support this initiative.
"It was rewarding to join forces with the Army National Guard and the
Clinton Global Initiative to assist those in need following Hurricane
Sandy. People were comforted by the efforts of volunteers, service
providers, the military and others who came through. It was gratifying
to play a part in this amazing effort." - Hayley Hirschfield,
associate expense analyst, CA Technologies, Islandia.
CA Technologies and its employees have a long history of giving back to
those in need through employee volunteerism, matching gifts and
corporate contributions. To learn how you can help with Hurricane Sandy
