The contribution comes from Averitt’s associate-driven charitable giving organization, Averitt Cares for Kids. Nearly 85 percent of Averitt associates are part of the group, and give $1 per week to the cause.
“Our hearts go out to the people who have been impacted by the natural disasters in East Tennessee,” Gary Sasser, Averitt’s chairman and chief executive officer, said. “We want to do what we can to help the relief efforts there, and we’re proud to partner with the American Red Cross as it continues its important work.”
Red Cross disaster workers are currently assisting those who have lost their homes and possessions, providing relief and support services. This work includes operating three shelters in Tennessee to provide a safe place to stay, as well as providing necessities for evacuees.
