As we write, America is still feeling the impact of Hurricane Harvey, with thousands displaced or homeless, and billions of dollars in damage.
Along with PackExpo, where we're exhibiting this September in Las Vegas, we are pleased to support the American Red Cross with a donation of $100 today, and are pleased to know that the first $100,000 of donations will be matched by PackExpo.
Funds raised through PACK gives BACK™ (Monday, Sept. 25th at 4 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom of the Las Vegas Convention Center) will be provided to the American Red Cross to aid in relief efforts following Hurricane Harvey.
Additionally, PMMI has established a donation link (www.pmmi.org/we-care) and will match all funds donated up to $100,000. All PACK EXPO Las Vegas or Healthcare Packaging EXPO exhibitors who donate to the American Red Cross Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts through www.pmmi.org/we-care will receive a sign to display in their booth in recognition of their donation.
The PMMI Foundation will continue to honor the PACK EXPO Scholarships, this year providing six $5,000 scholarships to students focused on packaging or processing-related studies at PMMI Partner Schools. For more details, and to buy tickets to the event to support Hurricane Harvey victims, please visit www.packexpolasvegas.com/pack-gives-back.
- We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas (we still have comp code passes for free entry) and hope that you can also support this initiative with a donation, however modest.
Why not donate?
If you book an appointment to visit our stand, we'll provide you with free entry to the exhibition. So why not use some of those dollars saved, and make a small donation to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey?
