Honeywell Donates $255,000 in Equipment & Cash to Colorado Springs Volunteer Fire Departments

HHS-HHRF-024

Honeywell employees from around the world made generous donations through the Honeywell Humanitarian Relief Fund (HHRF) to support the Colorado Springs community in the aftermath of the Waldo Canyon Wildfires of 2012 and the Black Forest Wildfires of 2013. Donations of $255,000 in Honeywell personal protective equipment, including Honeywell gloves, boots and hoods as well as Honeywell’s Morning Pride turnout gear and helmets, went to three Waldo Canyon Volunteer fire departments and three Black Forest Volunteer fire departments. Direct cash donations were made to six additional Waldo Canyon volunteer fire companies.

“Every day thousands of men and women firefighters risk their lives to save our communities and keep us out of harm’s way,” said Tim Mahoney, President and CEO of Honeywell Aerospace. “They are members of our local volunteer fire departments, but we also know them as neighbors and family. To us they are heroes, and I am proud to recognize these volunteer firefighters for their courage, personal sacrifice, and commitment to the people of Colorado Springs.”

HHRF is part of Honeywell Hometown Solutions, the company’s corporate citizenship initiative.  It plays a vital role in bringing critical and timely assistance to employees and their families who need help rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of natural disasters such as fires, hurricanes, flooding and earthquakes.
