Liebherr USA, Co. actively supports the Red Cross of Coastal Virginia as a Volunteer Sponsor supporting the efforts of the Disaster Relief Operation’s Team.

The Liebherr Volunteer Sponsor funds enable the Red Cross of Coastal Virginia to deploy a volunteer to a disaster relief operation. Disaster relief volunteers are available to deploy at a moment’s notice any day or night. These dedicated volunteers can provide crucial assistance including food, water, shelter, medication, and other life-saving essentials during times of tragedy.

“Whether it is responding to support a family displaced by a home fire in Norfolk, or a community devastated by a wildfire in Texas, Red Cross volunteers are the face of hope to those in need,” said Jenny Lester, Senior Regional Philanthropy Officer with the American Red Cross. “The support of Liebherr will allow our organization to continue to recruit, train, and deploy volunteers whenever our community calls and we are truly grateful for their investment in our mission.”

From house fires to multi-state natural disasters, the American Red Cross responds to an average of 65,000 disasters a year with 95% of those respondents being volunteers. Local sponsorships are essential to keep the Disaster Relief Program prepared and staffed for the next time relief is needed.

“Caring for our community and those in need is something our company embraces with deep dedication, whether is through our employee sponsorship program or corporate sponsorships. We are proud to support the Red Cross of Coastal Virginia in their vital disaster relief efforts making a tangible difference for our community in times of crisis,” said Ana Cabiedes, Head of Marketing, Liebherr USA, Co.
