CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – Employees from CBE Companies Inc. (CBE) are assisting hurricane victims in Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida through a donation to the American Red Cross. 

This month CBE donated $12,000 to the Red Cross as part of its Casual for a Cause initiative. The program allows employees to wear jeans to work when those employees volunteer for a regular paycheck deduction targeted for charity. 

A committee of CBE staff regularly evaluate potential recipients of the charity funds and saw an opportunity to make an impact in light of hurricanes Maria, Harvey and Irma that affected so many lives in Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida.

“Casual for a Cause has been such an excellent way for us to give back to our communities. One of the great things about the program is the ability to be flexible and respond to pressing needs,” said Mary Phillips, CBE Chief Human Resources Officer. 

Employees at each CBE location support local, non-profit organizations each month through CBE’s Casual for a Cause initiative.
