After hurricane Harvey and Irma wrecked the southern United States, the employees of RC Willey asked what we could do to help. The company decided to have two casual Fridays, where employees could dress as they wished, as long as they made a donation of their choice to the hurricane fund. Management got involved and offered a company match for whatever amount the employees raised and we are proud to say that we will be donating a total of $18,516 to charities who are helping the victims of Irma and Harvey. Our Harvey funds will be donated to the Houston Food Bank, Catholic Charities of Houston and Samaritan's Purse. We are finalizing our Irma donations this week.
I've only worked at RC Willey a few years but it's become very obvious to me that the employees of RC Willey do their best to help our local communities and beyond, thanks to the support and encouragement from the company. Plus, each General Manager works in his or her local community to support charitable causes and we are starting to document those donations on our individual store location pages. Tomorrow, our Salt Lake City store will be hosting a blood drive which will benefit the victims of the tragedy in Las Vegas and our associates have already filled the available slots, plus we have a waitlist in case there's extra time. If you'd like to donate blood, please visit this link and find a blood donation center near you.
