McLean, VA (PRWEB) November 19, 2013
FrontPoint Security,the nationwide leader in wireless home security, has donated $2,500 to the American Red Cross to aid the relief efforts in the Philippines following Typhoon Haiyan.
In an effort to raise awareness of the ongoing needs throughout the Philippines, FrontPoint posted news of the donation across its social channels, urging followers to spread the news and make a donation of their own.
“Our thoughts are with everyone in the Philippines affected by Typhoon Haiyan,” said FrontPoint Security Co-Founder and CEO Chris Villar. “Organizations like the American Red Cross need ongoing support, especially in times of great tragedy. It’s heartbreaking to read the news and stories from those affected by the typhoon. This is just a small token of what we’re able to do to help rebuild the region.”
Typhoon Haiyan was reportedly one of the strongest tropical storms ever recorded. Its winds reached an estimated sustained peak of 195 miles per hour, with gusts rising to 235 mph. The storm destroyed at least 80,000 homes and an estimated 582,000 people have been left homeless. Up to 2,500 people are believed to have been killed by Haiyan.
FrontPoint’s donation will be used by the Red Cross to distribute relief items, repair and rebuild shelters, provide healthcare, and ensure access to clean water and sanitation systems. The American Red Cross is also helping to reconnect separated families and has activated its family tracing services.
