The American Society of Radiologic Technologists will donate $10,000 to the American Red Cross for disaster relief efforts following Hurricane Sandy. The donation is on behalf of the ASRT’s 148,000 members.
“We believe the best way to assist is by financially supporting organizations such as the Red Cross, which are providing immediate assistance with shelter, food and disaster relief,” said ASRT President Donna Thaler Long, in the press release.
Based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the ASRT is a long-time supporter of the national and local chapters of the American Red Cross. “Red Cross is committed to serving those affected by disaster, and we are fortunate to have partners like ASRT,” said Rahim Balsara, interim CEO of the American Red Cross in New Mexico. “We sincerely thank all the members of ASRT for their generosity and support of Red Cross efforts.”
The ASRT will also make a separate donation to the Red Cross to match contributions collected by its 110 employees.
