Flint and employees donate to 9/11 charities
The Flint Ink Foundation and Flint Ink employees worldwide have donated more than $290,000 to September 11 charities. The generous contribution is the result of “an immediate, heartfelt desire among Flint Ink employees to do something to help in the aftermath of the recent national tragedy,” says Dave Frescoln, president and COO of Flint Ink, headquartered in Ann Arbor, MI.
“Flint Ink’s employees transcended the anger, fear, and uncertainty we all felt. The response of our Foundation board and our employees has been truly remarkable. Their caring spirit and generosity is inspiring,” Frescoln adds.
Immediately after the horrific events of September 11, Flint Ink employees at the company’s global headquarters and from operations around the world expressed the need to help those affected by the tragedy. The organization’s Foundation responded promptly, and its board pledged a total of $250,000 to the cause. One hundred thousand dollars was immediately disbursed and shared equally between the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund and the United Way September 11 Fund.
The remaining $150,000 pledged was used as a five-to-one employee challenge. Ten days after the challenge was presented to them, Flint Ink employees from North America, Europe, Latin America, and Asia/Pacific reached the goal of $30,000. By the end of the eleventh day donations surpassed $40,000. The final combined donation totaled over $290,000.
