PRESS RELEASE: INVESTORS TRUST DONATES $20,000 TO MEXICO IN RESPONSE TO THE RECENT EARTHQUAKES
Following the horrific earthquakes that shook Mexico this past September, Investors Trust, true to its commitment to help others, quickly responded with a large donation of $20,000 to the GlobalGiving Mexico Earthquake Relief Fund.
The first earthquake struck off the southern coast of Mexico on Sept. 8, killing 90 people. And, shortly after, on Sept. 19, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake shook throughout Mexico City and the surrounding communities killing more than 200 people and devastating masses of land and infrastructure.
Investors Trust quickly reacted by contributing to the GlobalGiving Mexico Earthquake Relief Fund supporting emergency relief efforts in the region. Initially, all donations to this fund will go directly to the first responders and then they will transition the funds to a long-term recovery plan with local groups and organizations. GlobalGiving will be providing updates on how the donations are used, which will be relayed to the field in the coming months.
“We are devastated by the recent natural disasters that took the lives of many and caused horrific damage to the communities. Our hearts go out to the people of Mexico and the families that lost loved ones.
It’s hard to fully comprehend the massive destruction and chaos in the regions that were struck the hardest. Watching the videos and seeing bodies dragged from crumbled buildings is something that can’t be expressed in words. While we can’t fully understand what the people of Mexico City and the surrounding communities have endured and suffered through, we remain vigilant in our commitment to helping others and bringing relief during times of crisis and massive devastation.
While the lives lost can never be replaced and the horrific images of the devastation can never be erased, we want to be a part of the rebuilding and offer a sense of hope during times of despair. That’s what Investors Trust Cares is all about and will always stand for, to be a light of hope during times of darkness in this world.” – Lindsay Paris, Media and Communications Manager at Investors Trust
