Matching Gift Program to Aid European Flood Victims
Following several days of intense and heavy rain, central Europe is experiencing catastrophic floods that have burst dams, forced thousands of people to evacuate their homes, and killed at least one dozen people.
Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic are among the countries struggling the most – with some cities experiencing the worst floods in decades – and emergency workers and volunteers are working to contain the damage and assist in the recovery and cleanup efforts.
To assist with the relief and recovery efforts, Thermo Fisher Scientific has established a matching program for employee contributions to the Red Cross Societies and International Federation of the Red Crescent. The company will match 50 percent of employee donations made to these organizations.
The program has been designed to ensure that your individual donations can be put to work immediately, while the company match will be sent to the Red Cross after the campaign ends.
