In case you haven’t heard, April is National Volunteer Month! We recently published a post highlighting the organizations Clairemont gives back to and how you can make a difference, too. Today we will be sharing how our client Ingersoll Rand, a global provider of mission-critical flow creation and industrial solutions, makes a difference and donates to Ukraine.
Ingersoll Rand donates to Ukraine
When the war with Ukraine hit and Ingersoll Rand saw the loss of lives and damage it caused, Ingersoll Rand knew it needed to do something to help.
Ingersoll Rand associates rolled up their sleeves to pack hygiene kits that included soap, towels, toothbrushes, water jugs and more. Ingersoll Rand is donating these kits to the Krakow brand of the Polish Red Cross as part of Ingersoll Rand’s program to support the people of Ukraine.
Polish Red Cross
In addition to creating the hygiene kits, Ingersoll Rand is partnering with offices in Poland to raise additional aid. So far, the locations have collected nearly one thousand dollars, first aid kits, thermal blankets and sleeping gear that will be donated to the Polish Red Cross.
Ingersoll Rand’s World Food Programme
In March, the company also launched Ingersoll Rand’s World Food Programme campaign to help those in Ukraine. As part of this campaign, Ingersoll Rand announced its commitment of $1 million in Ukrainian humanitarian aid. Ingersoll Rand donated $250,000, along with up to an additional $250,000 through matching employee donations through a partnership with World Food Program. The donations from Ingersoll Rand will help U.N. World Food Programme provide those in and fleeing from Ukraine with meals.
In addition, Ingersoll Rand pledged to contribute another $500,000 in critical product donations. These products are designed to help with medical, water, sanitation and disaster response situations.
