SMC³ and its employees have donated a total of $30,000 to the American Red Cross, earmarked to assist recovery efforts associated with hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
In one week, company employees raised a total of $6,000 for hurricane relief; SMC³ then doubled each dollar contributed by its employees and secured additional matching contributions.
In addition to the $30,000 donation, SMC³ has announced it will donate 10 percent of each paid registration fee from Jump Start 2018, one of North America’s preeminent supply chain conferences, to the American Red Cross through the end of September.

On August 25, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the Houston area as a Category 4 storm.
Hurricane Irma followed when it hit Florida September 10 and 11, after causing devastation in the Caribbean.
Relief efforts to bring aid to victims of both natural disasters will be stretched out for months and years to come.
“Hurricanes Harvey and Irma uprooted families and disrupted many lives. Our employees immediately set about offering assistance to victims of these natural disasters,” said Andrew Slusher, SMC³ CEO and president.
“Given the magnitude of the damage caused by these storms, I felt that SMC³ should amplify the charitable work done by our caring and compassionate team of professionals.”
“We’re thankful that we can provide aid where and when it is needed so those affected by the storms can get back on their feet.”
SMC³ has a longstanding commitment to humanitarian efforts.
Much of this occurs in the immediate community, but when a disaster strikes, the company strives to help out in any way possible.
During initial recovery efforts for the hurricanes, employees were engaged locally in sending relief supplies to Houston and the surrounding area.
SMC³ has also been a longtime sponsor of local charities and arts organizations.
