Stuller Establishes Relief Fund
Stuller Inc. established the Community Foundation of Acadiana/Stuller Katrina Relief Fund to help refugees from the hurricane, announced Charles D. Lein, president and COO.
Stuller made the announcement via an open letter to its customers, vendors, friends and associates. "We have had numerous calls and e-mails inquiring of our well being and that of our families," writes Lein. "While we have encountered some interruptions with our telephone and carrier services, we are fully operational and only missed one day of servicing our customers. These inconveniences are minor compared with the immense devastation along the Gulf Coast regions of Mississippi, Alabama, Southeast Louisiana and New Orleans. Most of our associates' families have physically fared well; however many have relatives that lived in this ravaged area.
"There are numerous challenges, which will need to be resolved in the weeks and months to come."
One hundred percent of tax-deductible contributions made to the fund will go to helping the survivors of Katrina.
To help, make checks payable to:
