(Source: PRNewswire release)

Safelite AutoGlass has announced that it will donate $10,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to support the victims of hurricanes Charley and Frances.

"We've served more than a thousand victims of Hurricane Charley in the last three weeks, so our team has seen first-hand the devastation and loss as we drive to customers' homes and talk with them at our locations," said Dan Wilson, president & chief executive officer. "With Hurricane Frances affecting many areas of Florida, including those already recovering from Charley, we felt it was important to do something more by supporting the Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts."

Safelite deployed its Catastrophe Action Team (CAT), a team of more than 25 technicians and support personnel, to Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Charley. In response to Hurricane Frances, Safelite has already begun sending additional staff and trucks loaded with inventory and supplies ready to move into affected areas. The Catastrophe Action Team is also monitoring the path of Hurricane Ivan so that any areas that could be potentially impacted by the storm are prepared in advance.
