Tower Generator Supports AmeriCares
Stamford, Conn. – Aug. 4, 2016 – Representatives from Tower Generator recently donated $3,000 to AmeriCares for its emergency response and health programs worldwide. The Canton-based company was introduced to AmeriCares last year while designing and installing a 250 KW standby generator system for its Stamford distribution center.
“At the time, AmeriCares was sending relief workers and medicine to Nepal after a major earthquake,” said Tower Generator President Chris Atiyeh. “We were impressed by the people we met and their willingness to help survivors. We wanted to support them in a larger way.”
The company decided to make a donation to support the organization’s programs worldwide as soon as the generator project was completed. Employees who heard about the work AmeriCares was doing in Nepal and 90 other countries also contributed, Atiyeh said.
AmeriCares has been aiding people affected by poverty or disaster for nearly 40 years, saving lives and improving health for people in crisis. On average, AmeriCares responds to 30 natural disasters and humanitarian crises worldwide each year. AmeriCares also works to increase access to critical medicine and medical supplies, and supports health services and education programs in vulnerable communities.
AmeriCares is an emergency response and global health organization committed to saving lives and building healthier futures for people in crisis in the United States and around the world. Every day, AmeriCares puts critically needed medicines and supplies in the hands of frontline health workers and develops innovative, sustainable health improvements in their communities.
