Mainline establishes matching fund to aid Hurricane Michael victims
TALLAHASSEE, FL – October 19, 2018
Mainline Information Systems, a leading provider of IT solutions and services, today committed financial support toward Hurricane Michael relief efforts. A Category 4 Hurricane, with winds of 155 mph, Hurricane Michael devastated both shoreline and inland areas of Florida and Georgia, and was especially hard felt in Mainline’s neighboring, rural communities of the Florida Big Bend area. To help those who have been impacted by this tragic event, Mainline is contributing an initial $5000 to The Salvation Army Disaster Relief fund, which provides hot meals for those in need in the Big Bend area. Mainline has also announced an employee matching funds campaign, where the company will match employee contributions to America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend. Mainline expects matching contributions to be $25 thousand.
“The communities to our immediate west took a catastrophic hit. Most of us in Tallahassee know families that have been severely impacted – no running water, no electricity and some with no home”, said Joe Elebash, Mainline CFO. “Mainline employees are also donating their time to assist local disaster relief organizations. We’re fortunate to have an owner, Rick Kearney, and a corporate culture that supports and engages in giving campaigns such as this one.”
The Kearney Center, founded by Rick Kearney, Mainline Chairman and Founder, provides comprehensive emergency services to the less fortunate in the Tallahassee area. During and post Hurricane Michael, The Kearney Center provided safe shelter to a nightly average of 387 people.
