Mitsubishi is teaming up with the Red Cross in order to raise money. The funds raised will be instrumental in helping the Red Cross Home Fire campaign meet its goals. Smoke alarms will be purchased for low-income and at-risk homes, to reduce the number of home fires in low socio-economic neighborhoods.
According to Mitsubishi, the Mitsubishi Red Cross Partnership in Normal, Illinois has donated a total of $30,000 in order to increase the number of fire alarms in the area. This is designed to prevent injuries and fatalities, especially for those at risk such as children, women, and lower class individuals. Fire alarms are essential for every home, but they are an emergency device that often goes overlooked.
“The American Red Cross is a great organization that works to improve the well-being of the community. We’re honored to play a part in the Red Cross Home Fire campaign and trust that the donation made today will further their efforts,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president of Mitsubishi North America.
This is just one of the many ways Mitsubishi is dedicated to giving back to those in need.
