At VETRO, we think about the meaning of connection every day. In our industry, that usually starts with cables and equipment; but behind every network connection that our platform supports, there is a person seeking connection with the world.
Today, we’re thinking about connection in a different way. The tornado that ripped through Kentucky and several other states this December left a trail of devastation in its wake. The families and business owners we strive to connect through our customers have lost loved ones, homes, businesses, safe utilities and so much more.
Our own VP of Broadband Strategy, Brian Mefford, lives with his family in western Kentucky and they have been working tirelessly alongside other volunteers within their community to connect neighbors to water, shelter, transportation, and food.
Brian’s work on the ground in Kentucky embodies one of VETRO’s core values, community. In this moment, our hearts ache for the loss, grief and trauma that our neighbor communities in Kentucky are feeling, and we want to help enable recovery from afar.
To support community rebuilding, we invite you to join us in making a donation to the American Red Cross disaster relief fund for Kentucky. VETRO will match $2,500 of donations made through our American Red Cross site, and we hope together we can send a message to the members of our broader community in the south that we are thinking of them during this terrible time.
Please consider a donation of $10 or more to support our neighbors in Kentucky and the surrounding affected areas. And as we move into the holidays and the turn of the year, we wish you and your communities safety, peace and fellowship, and swift healing for those among us experiencing great challenges.
Thank you so much for your support.
