Just weeks after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, the U.S. was struck by yet another major disaster: Hurricane Irma. Irma—which was recognized as one of the strongest hurricanes to ever hit the Atlantic—first struck Florida and then moved on to several surrounding states. According to news reports, the hurricane has caused an estimated $100 billion in damage and taken dozens of lives.
At Scorpion, it pains us to see the loss and turmoil caused by this hurricane. To lend a helping hand, we decided to donate to Direct Relief. This not-for-profit organization has been heavily involved in providing medical supplies and services to healthcare facilities in Florida and the Caribbean that provide care for victims of Hurricane Irma. Direct Relief is a humanitarian medical aid organization that serves people affected by emergency situations and poverty—both in the U.S. and internationally.
“Our hearts go out to those displaced by this natural disaster,” said Corey Quinn, Scorpion’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Scorpion will continue to help support individuals and businesses affected during these difficult times.”
If you would like to help those who have been affected by Hurricane Irma, we encourage you to donate to Direct Relief or another reputable organization that is providing much-needed resources to the hurricane victims. Even the smallest donation makes a difference!
Charitable giving is core value of our culture at Scorpion. We believe in helping others in need within our own community and beyond, and we are honored to support an organization like Direct Relief that positively impacts the lives of so many people.
