Helping with Nepal Earthquake Relief Efforts: A Note from Paul Allison, Chairman & CEO of Raymond James Ltd. to Raymond James Associates
We were all moved by the images of the recent earthquakes in Nepal. As I previously mentioned our hearts go out to the thousands of individuals and families who are feeling such terrible losses. I have always known that the people of Raymond James believe in giving back to the communities in which we live in and work, but our generous spirit goes well beyond national borders; when we see a need, we respond. This is who we are, and you have demonstrated that fact yet again.
I am very proud to be part of a firm where people care so deeply about helping others in their time of need and I can happily report that the total donation (including match) that the Raymond James Canada Foundation has forwarded to the Canadian Red Cross is $95,945.
Our partners at the Canadian Red Cross were grateful for our quick action and generosity, and this money will go a long way in helping the people of Nepal rebuild their lives and their country.
Thank you for your generosity and caring spirit. And thanks for making a difference in the lives of so many.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
