FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
CONTACT: Celina Klee
Labor Finders International, Inc.
• Labor Finders: partnering with Thrushwood Farms, MCD
Supply Company and Prime Distributors
• Labor Finders: building strong lasting relationships with
PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL-When companies join
together to help those in need it is a beautiful thing to behold.
Shortly after the devastating tornados ripped through the city of
Moore and the Oklahoma City region, Becca Stotts the Office Manager
of Labor Finders Oklahoma City North along with Franchisee David
McDaniel knew they had to do something to assist in the recovery of
their community. McDaniel reached out to Jeffrey Burnett,
President & CEO of Labor Finders International, who then
immediately contacted the company's Public Relations Manager Celina
Klee who started connecting with companies who would be willing to
work together to help Oklahoma in this time of need.
First on Celina's list was Keith Swart of MCD Supply Company in
Durham, North Carolina. Mr. Swart arranged for the immediate
purchase and delivery of 3,000 much needed leather palmed daily
work gloves along with 45 cases of Neosporin and he also got his
distributors to forgo the extremely pricy shipping/freight costs.
"The tornado destruction was truly devastating and when Celina
called me, it was a no-brainer, I just had to help Labor Finders in
assisting them with their Oklahoma relief project," stated
Working to help put a community back together again takes true
determination along with endless hours-with very little time to
grab a meal yet alone a snack. Second, on the list was to
purchase a healthy quick meal. Beef sticks came highly
recommended. Celina contacted Doug Hankes, the VP Operations at
Thrushwood Farms and arranged to purchase 2,500 assorted beef
sticks at an amazing discounted price and then the company threw in
free shipping. "Partnering with an organization like
Labor Finders to supply something as simple as a snack stick to
those assisting with the recovery in Oklahoma speaks right to the
heart of our company; it is something that we take pride in here at
Thrushwood Farms," said Doug Hankes.
"Labor Finders is proud to do its part to assist those in need
in Oklahoma after the recent tornados in the Oklahoma City South
region. Special thanks need to go out to David McDaniel, the Labor
Finders franchisee in Oklahoma, for spearheading the effort to get
much needed relief supplies to the area," said Burnett. Mr.
Burnett is also proud to state that several other Labor Finders
franchisees donated to the Oklahoma relief effort.
In the past couple of weeks, Oklahoma has been hit by more
tornados and severe weather. This leads one to ponder, why would
anyone want to live in the core of Tornado Alley. Ms. Stotts
said it poignantly, "Oklahoma. A place where you can see the
most extreme opposites in the same day, where people aren't afraid
to start over, where everything can be ripped away from you in
seconds but you still carry on. People come as different as
they can, but the minute that siren sounds, we're all in the same
place. There is just something about ending each day with the
sun setting on the widest, beautiful, and most dangerous horizon
I've ever seen. There is nothing like it. It's Home.
" Well said Rebecca.
