Disaster Kleenup International Inc., a network of quality, independent property damage restoration contractors, has provided a means for individuals and companies to donate funds to the American Red Cross relief effort on the Gulf Coast following the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina this past week.
Effective immediately, visitors to the company’s Web site, www.disasterkleenup.com, will find a link to the American Red Cross online donation form where they can make financial contributions to the organization’s Disaster Relief Fund. These funds will be used to directly provide needed food, supplies, shelter, medicine and other basic necessities in those areas ravaged by the storm.
In addition to making its own corporate donation and facilitating humanitarian relief through others, several DKI member companies are already in the impacted areas assisting in the recovery efforts.
“Even for those of us who see disaster on a daily basis as part of our jobs, the immense scale of the devastation from Katrina is beyond rational comprehension,” said Dale Sailer, president of Disaster Kleenup International. “One never wants to appear to trivialize other disasters, but the extent of Katrina’s impact almost makes last year’s storms in Florida seem minor by comparison. It has truly been a couple of unsettling years for our fellow citizens in the Southeast”
With an increasing number of deaths being reported, Katrina has also left well over a million people homeless and presents relief workers with a situation of unprecedented scale and severity in the U.S.
