Sterigenics International, LLC., a global leader in contract sterilization services, announced today it will donate $50,000 to the American Red Cross to support disaster relief efforts for victims of Typhoon Haiyan and those impacted by the multi-state outbreak of tornadoes and powerful storms in the Midwest on November 17, including Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin.
"As a company who serves Medical Device manufactures around the world, we are committed to improving the quality of global public health," said Michael J. Mulhern, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "It is with this spirit we present this donation to support the ongoing relief efforts in the wake of natural disasters across the globe.”
