Sherida Books Donates Over $20,000 to Katrina Relief
Immediately following the news regarding the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina, Sheridan Books employees wanted to know how they could help. Sheridan Books began an employee fundraiser for hurricane relief efforts on Sept. 1, 2005.
By the second day employees had already donated over $5,500! Donations were accepted through Sept. 8, 2005. A total of 88 Sheridan Books employees contributed to the fundraiser; raising over $10,200.
Sheridan Books matched the employee's donations 100 percent. The President of Sheridan Books, Inc., Robert Moore, was very impressed with the immediate and generous response from the employees- "This is another example of the generous spirit of our Sheridan Books employees in support of the Red Cross. This rallying spirit is similar to the support our employees gave to the families involved in the September 11, 2001 tragedy in New York. All of us at Sheridan Books share the grief for the families impacted by Hurricane Katrina, and for all those who have lost so very much."
On Sept. 23, 2005, a grand total of $20,512 was presented to Lorena Mallock and Laura Meengs with the Washtenaw Chapter of the American Red Cross.
