ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. — Langan Engineering & Environmental Services and its employees quickly responded to the recent natural disasters impacting citizens around the country by donating $25,000 to the American Red Cross. Half of the money, $12,500, came directly from employees. Langan matched the amount to bring the total to $25,000, which will go directly to victims of Hurricane Irene and the devastating tornados that hit Alabama and other Southeastern states.
“Citizenship is a core value at Langan, and the selfless actions of our employees during an economic recession, show that we all take citizenship to heart by generously giving to people in need across the country,” said David T. Gockel, president/CEO, Langan Engineering & Environmental Services. “Hurricane Irene and the other recent natural disasters directly affected many of the communities where Langan employees live and work, and we all hope that this contribution will help our neighbors begin the rebuilding process.”
Langan and its employees have a consistent track record of giving to the American Red Cross in the wake of catastrophes. In the past seven years, Langan fundraisers amassed more than a quarter million dollars for victims around the world including those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, earthquakes in Haiti and China, the Myanmar cyclone, Hurricane Katrina, and other severe storms in the United States.
