Visioneer "Where There is a Need" Program Supports Disaster Relief and
Recovery in Wake of Superstorm Sandy
PLEASANTON, Calif., Feb. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- If you have ever stood on
a beach and stared out at the ocean, you have experienced the power of Mother
Nature. But it wasn't until we saw the news of how Superstorm Sandy destroyed
an entire coastline in mere hours that we truly understood the strength of her
power. Now, nearly four months after the storm, the American Red Cross is
still deploying volunteers to provide disaster relief in the New York area.
Today, Visioneer is proud to announce that this quarter the American Red Cross
is going to be the beneficiary of Visioneer's "Where There Is A Need Program."
According to a three-month update, published by the American Red Cross in
January 2013, approximately 5 million relief supplies have been distributed,
more than 5.4 million meals and snacks provided and nearly 67,000 people have
been reached to assess needs and provide recovery services in just New York.
"Our hearts go out to those affected by this destructive storm," said Greg
Elder, Visioneer's CFO and Sustainability Officer."I was born in Staten
Island, and it saddens me deeply to think about the devastation that people
are living with right now, the historical landmarks that were lost and how
much more needs to be done to rebuild. Every donation will help."
About Where There Is A Need
Where There Is A Need is a philanthropic program that helps worthy
organizations across the globe that provide assistance to people and places in
need. For every customer who registers a Visioneer or Xerox® DocuMate®
scanner, Visioneer will donate $1 to an international disaster relief, cause,
or environmental program each quarter on their behalf. Both Visioneer and our
customers can now have a direct impact on helping individuals in need around
"The goal of Where There Is A Need is to embrace responsibility for our
company's actions and encourage a positive impact through our activities on
the people that develop, manufacture and sell our products, the businesses and
families that use our products, and the communities and environment we all
live and work in," said Elder. "It is our goal that Visioneer's social
responsibility is not merely words on our website, but a fundamental part of
how we conduct our business, make decisions, and set our priorities."
