American IT company donates $5,000 to ‘Yolanda’ victims

A Washington D.C.-based information technology services and consulting company has donated $5,000 for the victims of typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) last November 2013.

Philippine Red Cross Chairman Richard Gordon described the financial aid extended by Emagine IT as a “huge morale boost for the millions of families who lost their homes and loved ones, and need all the support they can get to rebuild their lives.”

Gordon accepted the donation from Bing Branigin, a director of the National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA), during a ceremony held recently at a Philippine Red Cross center in Tacloban City.

“We are deeply grateful to the leaders of Emagine IT for responding promptly with compassion and generosity,” Branigin said in a statement. “Their action reflects the company’s commitment to charitable and humanitarian endeavors – values that strengthen and sustain our connection as human beings.”

Emagine IT specializes in delivering innovative, cost conscious solutions to help commercial, federal, state and local governments achieve high performance efficiencies. (Roy Mabasa)
