M.C. Dean has launched an employer matching campaign in partnership with Global Empowerment Mission to support the humanitarian aid mission.
“A large number of employees relocated to the U.S. from our former offices in Odessa and Kharkiv, Ukraine, as valued members of the M.C. Dean family,” said Bill Dean, M.C. Dean chief executive officer. “Our hearts go out to their families and the people of Ukraine. We hope this donation will bring relief to people on the ground.”
The M.C. Dean Foundation will match employee contributions dollar-for-dollar to support Global Empowerment Mission’s aid efforts, delivering shipments of clothing and medical supplies as well as travel and accommodations to Ukrainian refugees in Eastern Europe.
Employees can submit donations through payroll deduction or check through the M.C. Dean Intranet.
