1-800-BOARDUP is proud to be an active member in the American Red Cross Disaster Responder Program and committed to helping the Red Cross achieve its mission of alleviating suffering in the face of emergencies. Given that the principal mission of 1-800-BOARDUP is to ‘help people recover from one of the worst days of their lives’, it was both natural and logical that 1-800-BOARDUP and the American Red Cross partner to serve people in their time of need. Like the American Red Cross, 1-800-BOARDUP provides crucial disaster recovery services to thousands of home and business owners that have suffered from damaging fires, floods and storms. Over the years, our victim assistance specialists and loss consultants have built lasting relationships of trust with emergency first responders, and every day we are called out to emergencies to help families rebuild their lives.
A Commitment to Serve
As part of our mission to give back to the communities that we serve, our more than 100 affiliates across the United States are committed to supporting American Red Cross Disaster Relief by hosting fundraisers such as golf tournaments, raffles, BBQs and other events. Terry Austin, Director of Emergency Services in Charlotte, NC, said “the Charlotte office of 1-800-BOARDUP is proud to say we raised $2,500 to give to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Over 950 people attended our BBQ fundraiser on October 3, 2014, at the Charlotte Firefighters Retro Bar-B-Que. We, at 1-800-BOARDUP, are proud to partner with the Red Cross in our area and hope to continue with such events for such a worthy cause.”
“The initial concept of our 1-800-BOARDUP emergency structural stabilization service was actually born from my past experience working with victims on fire scenes as a Red Cross Disaster Action Team member many years ago,” said Michael Hosto, President and Founder of 1-800-BOARDUP. He is thrilled with the initiative each fractional franchise office has taken in conjunction with this partnership. Michael said, “Over the next year, we will see many more of our offices take part in these fundraising efforts. Seeing the two organizations come together now to serve disaster victims all across America is a rewarding experience for all of the emergency service providers that proudly wear our 1-800-BOARDUP Dalmatian logo.”
