Crystal Window & Door Systems Contributes to Quaker Relief

Employees of Crystal Window & Door in Flushing, N.Y., pooled their resources to help victims of the recent earthquake in the Sichuan Province of China. Together, employees donated several thousand dollars with the company matching their donations for a total of $9,000.

Isabella Leung, Crystals' manager of human resources, presented the funds to Sonia Martinez, Manhattan office director and Joan Foley, Queens office director of the American Red Cross of Greater New York on June 26 at Crystal's headquarters.

"The China earthquake tragedy hit home for Crystal since a majority of our employees are Asian," says Leung. "Although Crystal employees have their own bills to pay and families to support, they all wanted to do something to help those suffering in China. This donation reflects the spirit of the people at Crystal-hardworking, eager to help others however they can."

Crystal employees have donated to the relief efforts of other natural disasters in the past, including Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the 2004 South Asian tsunami. After the 9/11 attacks the company also set aside a percentage of its year-end sales, and along wit employee contributes donated nearly $100,000 to several organizations involved with recovery efforts.
