IRIS USA, Inc., a U.S. household products manufacturer with headquarters in Surprise, Arizona, recently donated $7,500 of employee and corporate cash donations, along with various medical supplies to PROJECT C.U.R.E., a non-profit organization assisting in humanitarian efforts to the people of Ukraine.
In only 2 weeks, IRIS USA employees in Arizona, Texas, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin came together to donate a variety of medical and survival supplies to help the people of Ukraine fleeing the ongoing conflict. Medical supplies included backpacks, bandages, and other medicines. Employees also made cash donations, in which the company matched up to $100.00. All donations were delivered to a PROJECT C.U.R.E. distribution center in Tempe, AZ, where the supplies will be sorted and shipped directly to Ukrainians in need.
PROJECT C.U.R.E., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, humanitarian relief organization based in Denver, Colorado, and is one of the largest nonprofit organizations in the world that delivers medical supplies and equipment to developing countries. Since 1987, the project has expanded to over 134 countries, providing medical supply donations to medical facilities around the world.
"We are truly devastated to hear about those who were displaced from their homes and families split apart in Ukraine due to the ongoing conflict,” remarks Hiroyuki “Doc” Takahashi, the president of IRIS USA, Inc. “We hope that the violence comes to an end soon and for split families to be back together again. IRIS USA and the IRIS Group as a whole will do whatever we can to continually support our communities, locally and globally.”
