MT. LAUREL, NJ / September 22, 2005 / PRICE Systems, world leader in Program Affordability Management, is extending a helping hand in philanthropic activities to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, PRICE Systems will be volunteering at a Philadelphia job event for victims who have since relocated to the Tri-State area, encompassing portions of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. Through the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce (Tri-State HR), PRICE will be among other companies organizing job openings for the more than 700 displaced victims in our area.
"On behalf of the company's leadership and all of our PRICE Systems family, we extend our deepest sympathies to families and all those affected by this tragic event," said Anthony DeMarco, PRICE Systems President. "We feel that our involvement represents PRICE's commitment to the civic duty of our nation."
PRICE Systems has also contributed $5,000 to the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund, which provides support for Katrina victims and rebuilding along the Gulf Coast.
Former Presidents Bush and Clinton established the Bush-Clinton Katrina Funds to provide relief and rebuilding resources to help the victims of this disaster. These charitable funds will collect cash and in-kind donations and work with the governors of the affected states to coordinate both the short and long term relief.
To date, the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund has raised more than $90 million in corporate contributions and large gifts from individuals.
