Palecek helps rebuild school destroyed by Typhoon Haiyan
January 20, 2014,
A donation by Palecek will help rebuild a school that was devastated by Typhoon Haiyan in November.
The funds donated by Palecek will immediately be utilized to rebuild a public school that was "damaged beyond use," according to a press release.
Andrew Palecek, vice president of Palecek, visited with the educators and students at the affected school last week. "It is difficult to see all of the catastrophic destruction caused by the typhoon and it is clear significant aid is still needed from the international community for this region to recover," Palecek said. "As a company, it is important for us to invest in the people here and ensure school facilities are safe and conducive environments for education."
Palecek has a long-standing history of providing aid to communities in the wake of natural disasters, having made donations to the victims of the Myanmar Cyclone, Hurricane Katrina and the Asian tsunami disaster of 2004. As with all previous donations, Palecek matched employee contributions to the Typhoon Haiyan relief fund.
