SUNRISE, Fla., May 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- GL Homes, Florida's largest private homebuilder, proudly announced today that the company and its employees have donated $130,000 to the American Red Cross in support of humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine and for Ukrainian refugees. This is currently the largest corporate donation in Palm Beach County to the Red Cross for this effort.
"Everyone has watched the horrific devastation inflicted upon Ukraine. GL Homes is deeply concerned for the Ukrainian people and the ongoing refugee crisis. Our company's culture drives us to make positive changes in our own communities and beyond," stated GL Homes Senior Director of Community Relations Sarah Alsofrom. "What affects one of us, affects all of us."
At this stage of the conflict, the Red Cross is one of the few aid organizations that has been given access to areas experiencing the heaviest fighting in Ukraine.
The humanitarian aid to those affected includes:
Distribution of food, water, medication (many of those fleeing lost their identification documents and prescriptions).
Providing beds to civilians taking refuge in bomb shelters
Setting up reception and transit points for internally displaced people
Delivery of supplies such as tarps for homes damaged by shelling
