The Miller Family Makes a Donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities

Posted by | Blog Updates | No Comments

Ronald McDonald House:

When your child is in hospital – especially with chronic or life threatening illnesses or injuries, whether it be for a short or long term stay, as a parent, you want to be by your child’s side helping them, supporting them and encouraging them. Unfortunately, for many people, they don’t have the financial where-with-all to stay in expensive hotels for all of that time. It can be a tremendous financial and emotional burden on families during already incredibly difficult times.
The Ronald McDonald House is a fantastic organization that provides housing, meals, support and counseling for families that find themselves in this type of situation. They charge nominal fees (it’s virtually free) for families to stay at their facilities and receive the support and help they need….for as long as they need.

Each Ronald McDonald House relies heavily on local charitable support from the community to keep it going…which is why the Miller family loves to support this charity.

In Service – The Miller Family

Joplin, Missouri Tornado 2011

Spring Storms

Posted by | Contributions | No Comments

After another round of severe weather in the Midwest, the American Red Cross has expanded relief operations into Oklahoma, and is continuing to ramp up services in Joplin, Missouri.

As tornado warnings were broadcast Tuesday evening, the number of people staying in the Red Cross shelter at Missouri Southern State University jumped to 348 people triple, the number the night before.

“This is a really tough time for everyone in this community,” said Charley Shimanski, senior vice president of Red Cross Disaster Services, who is in Joplin. “It’s going to be a long road for this town and for the many other towns that have been hit by disasters this spring. The important thing to remember is that the Red Cross will be there, and that we will get through this together.”

“This has been a rough disaster season with so many deadly tornadoes and disasters striking one after another for several weeks, and we’re grateful for contributions from donors which support the Red Cross response,” Shimanski added.

Corporate Visions has made a donation to the Red Cross to help support these disaster relief efforts.   In addition to our corporate donation CVI Power Foundation will match any donation made by our employees. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people and families affected by this disaster.
