Tom Crowley Jr., chairman, president and CEO of Crowley Maritime Corporation, presented a check for $100,000 to the Northeast Florida chapter of the American Red Cross for the Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund. The donation, which was presented to Jack Morgan, CEO American Red Cross Northeast Florida chapter, represented about $50,000 from Crowley employees worldwide coupled with a matching Crowley grant. The company launched the two-and-a-half week campaign where it matched donations from employees dollar for dollar. Employees from across the United States, in Central America and in the Caribbean came together to support the effort. "We are very proud of our employees," said Tom Crowley Jr. "They have shown unselfish commitment to this cause and we are pleased that we as a company could come together to bring hope to residents in the storm area, including our own employees in Gulfport and New Orleans." During the ceremony more than 100 Crowley employees in Jacksonville were present as Morgan accepted the donation on behalf of his organization and expressed heartfelt thanks to Crowley and its employees. "We are in day 39 of our Hurricane Katrina relief efforts," said Morgan. "To date, we have served 20 million meals. We are glad to know that there are companies like Crowley who come forth on behalf of those around the world."
