McLean, Va. (September 25, 2017) – Red Five, a private, McLean-based security and management consulting company, and its charitable arm, Red Hands Helping, has donated funds to two separate organizations for hurricane relief in Texas and Florida.
Red Hands Helping made contributions to Habitat for Humanity and the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) to assist those affected by the storms.
Habitat for Humanity has deployed to both regions to clean out homes damaged by the flood waters and high winds, and provide long-term housing repair and construction services to those in need. Habitat for Humanity is an international organization dedicated to providing decent and affordable housing to people in need. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Habitat for Humanity built more than 6,000 new homes and cleaned more than 2,500 homes.
The ARF is working with local animal shelters in Florida to evacuate cats and dogs; more than 250 pets have already been brought to safety by the organization as a result of Hurricane Irma. The ARF will continue to rescue pets, provide them with medical care, and shelter them until they are adopted. The ARF’s evacuation efforts will also make space in local Florida animal shelters for pets that were displaced by the storm. The ARF is a non-profit organization founded to rescue dogs and cats from high-kill shelters and strengthen human-animal bonds. The organization also provides medical services to pets in need.
“Everyone across the country is affected by the catastrophic devastation wrought by the recent storms, and we have come together as a Company to aid those who have lost homes, businesses and so much more,” commented Kris Coleman, President/CEO of Red Five. “I am continually inspired by our employees’ kindness, compassion and willingness to help others in times of need.”
