Joseph Federico, VP & Director of NJ MET, Announces 2014 Corporate Sponsorship of American Red Cross
NJ MET is renewing its sponsorship of the American Red Cross for a fourth year, Joseph Federico announced. The aid will help the Red Cross efforts in the Philippines.
The American Red Cross has been very involved in the relief efforts to recover from typhoon Haiyan which struck the Philippines in November, 2013. The Philippine Red Cross worked with local authorities to support people being evacuated in advance of the storm. The typhoon left devastation in its path, destroying roads and communications infrastructure in addition to homes, schools and businesses. The Red Cross has provided food, water, relief supplies and personnel starting immediately after the typhoon struck.
The American Red Cross’s efforts included sending personnel with expertise in communications infrastructure to help with repairs, sending supplies and using its family tracing service to connect Americans to missing family members in the Philippines.
In addition, the American Red Cross is working on a number of projects in the Philippines in reaction to typhoon Haiyan and earlier typhoons. One such project is the “Program for Enhancement of Emergency Response” which is helping Red Cross organizations throughout Southeast Asia improve disaster preparedness. This program increases the number of first responders in communities throughout the Philippines and the disaster prone areas of Southeast Asia.
“NJ MET’s annual Red Cross sponsorship is one of several charitable efforts at NJ MET” said Director Joseph Federico. Other recent projects through the Red Cross include efforts to help those in Japan, Haiti, Pakistan and Sri Lanka as well as American military members while they are serving around the world and when they return home.
