Honeywell has deployed its Honeywell Humanitarian Relief Fund (HHRF) to support nearly 100 employees who have been affected by the devastating wildfires in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Honeywell plans to contribute monies through the HHRF and will also match employee donations dollar-for-dollar to support the relief efforts. Support will initially include immediate cash assistance for food, clothing, and shelter to employees who have been temporarily displaced. The fund will then help with longer-term needs once the extent of the damage has been assessed and local efforts turn from fire fighting to rebuilding.
Honeywell employees in Colorado Springs support Honeywell Technology Solutions Inc. (HTSI), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Honeywell that provides a range of services for government customers in management, space systems and services, networks and field engineering, Department of Defense logistics, depot maintenance, staff augmentation, calibration, information technology, and cyber security.
“Honeywell is committed to helping rebuild the lives of our employees affected by the Colorado wildfires,” said Tom Buckmaster, President of Honeywell Hometown Solutions. “By partnering with our employees and deploying the HHRF, Honeywell will play a critical role in bringing rapid relief to our colleagues displaced by the fires and will stay closely involved to help them as they begin the long recovery process.”
The HHRF is part of Honeywell Hometown Solutions, the company's corporate citizenship initiative. The program creates a channel for corporate contributions and 100% of employees' donations to go directly to the people who need help rebuilding their lives as they cope with the destruction from fires, hurricanes, tsunamis, flooding, and earthquakes.
