12 Sep EVO & Sterling Hurricane Relief Effort
Please consider joining us to support ongoing Hurricane relief efforts.
As you all know, Hurricane Harvey slammed into Texas on Friday, Aug. 25, causing catastrophic flooding. On Sunday, September 10, Hurricane Irma made a direct hit on south Florida and continued to wreak havoc as it crawled up the middle of the state late Sunday night. Millions have been severely impacted by these storms, including EVO and Sterling employees, their families and pets, our merchants, sales reps, vendors and partners. They all need our help.
$35k Corporate Donation Matching Challenge
EVO and Sterling Payments Technologies, with generous support from former shareholders and funding partner Quickstone Solutions, is pleased to announce a $35k Corporate Matching initiative to give further relief to the victims of these catastrophes.
Until Sept.30, 2017 any financial donation given by our employees will be matched, dollar for dollar, by corporate contributions – up to $35,000. This means $35,000 of employee contributions becomes $70,000 in relief funds.
How can you give? To participate in the matching challenge, please click the link below to go to the EVO/Sterling fundraiser page on CrowdRise where you can easily and securely make a tax-deductible financial contribution. All donations of money will be directed to the American Red Cross and can be designated for Harvey, Irma, or other disaster relief efforts of your choosing.DONATE NOW
