Orscheln Industries is challenging its employees to give at least one hour of pay to the Haiti relief efforts. Orscheln Industries will match 100 percent of every contribution an employee makes during the “Give Your Time to Haiti” Campaign.

“A special campaign is under way to help the people of Haiti,” said Bob Orscheln, president of Orscheln Products. “It is heartbreaking to see the devastation, loss of life and serious injuries. They did not have a lot to start with, and now this! So, once again, we have asked our employees to be generous as they have on so many occasions in the past. We are truly blessed as a nation and a company, and as a result, when bad things happen, we should expect to be called on to help ... and we always do!”

All funds raised during this campaign will be donated to the American Red Cross’s Haiti Relief Fund.
