Xerox Still Assessing Impact of Attack, Puts Up $1 Million to Help NYC Victims

Press release from the issuing company

According to Xerox's web site: To all people who are in this excruciating limbo between fear and hope, please know that Xerox people are waiting and praying along side you during this time of national tragedy. While there is nothing in the world that can begin to replace the tremendous losses of this week, people at Xerox are expressing their sympathy and support through pledges to the community including: * A Xerox Foundation grant of $1 million to the NYC Public/Private Initiative for the children and families of police officers, firefighters and EMS personnel who lost their lives at the World Trade Center. * And a $50,000 donation -- also from the Xerox Foundation -- to the American Red Cross for its Strategic Blood Reserve. We encourage others to do the same: * American Red Cross Strategic Blood Reserve 430 17th Street NW Washington, DC 20006 ATTN: President's Office * NYC Public/Private Initiative City of New York 100 Church Street New York, NY 10007 ATTN: World Trade Center Project Xerox employees have responded extraordinarily well in this time of crisis. Our New York brothers and sisters are putting in long hours under the most trying circumstances, reaching out to area customers and helping them recover and rebuild businesses. At the same time, they - like all of us - continue to hope and pray for the Xerox account associates who are missing, for the family members of Xerox people who are missing, for the families of retired Xerox employees who were on board the flights, and all victims of this senseless tragedy. At Xerox, we believe all of us can do our part -- by praying and mourning, by continuing to support our loved ones and one another, and by demonstrating to the world that we are neither cowed by terrorism nor defeated by evil. Living our lives to the fullest -- at home and at work -- is the strongest message we can send to the rest of the world. We are a strong and resilient people -- even more so today than yesterday.
