Fort Worth, Texas-based MORSCO recently announced the company and its employees will donate $50,000 to hurricane relief efforts to support those impacted by hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
MORSCO donated $35,000 to the Salvation Army to support hurricane relief, which includes $15,000 of a company match for associate donations. MORSCO associates across all eight of MORSCO’s brands donated an additional $15,000 to the Salvation Army effort.
MORSCO operates more than 50 locations that were in the path of the storms, primarily in Texas and Florida, however damage to the company branches and showrooms was minimal.
“We are fortunate as a company that we weathered the storms with little impact to our facilities,” said Mike Swedick, president of plumbing for MORSCO. “However, some of our associates, customers and vendors were not as lucky. MORSCO’s brands have a deep history of community involvement and we are pleased to continue this tradition by supporting the Salvation Army’s hurricane relief efforts. We know many of our industry partners have a long road to recovery and we will continue to look for ways to support them on both a national and local level.”
In addition to the Salvation Army donation, associates at MORSCO locations across Texas and Florida also engaged in local relief efforts, including supply drives and volunteer activities.
MORSCO, a portfolio company of global private equity firm Advent International (“Advent”), has more than 170 branch locations, $1.7 billion in sales and 2,500 associates across 16 states.
