General Steel Corporation challenges other businesses to join in its commitment to help the victims of the Aurora movie theater shooting. In its own effort to assist, General Steel will donate 5% of the proceeds generated by any steel building sale between July 25, 2012 and August 31, 2012.
Littleton, CO (PRWEB) August 03, 2012
When a tragedy occurs like the Aurora movie theater shooting, Americans across the U.S. have proven time and time again their resolve and willingness to support those closest to the event with focused assistance. In the case of the Aurora shooting, the focus is on the Aurora Victim Relief Fund.
On a regular basis, General Steel reviews its ability to lend assistance not only when a tragedy occurs but also when humanitarian organizations or churches express a specific need. Over recent decades General Steel’s philanthropic work has included monetary donations as well as steel building donations in its neighboring community and even as far away as Africa.
“Being located in Littleton, CO near Columbine High School, we are no stranger to tragedy and the resulting hardship faced by the members of our community. Our corporate culture leads us to take action when our neighbors are in need. Therefore, until August 31, 2012 5% of the proceeds from any building sale will go directly to supporting our neighbors in Aurora, CO through the Aurora Victim Relief Fund,” says Jeff Knight.
General Steel is committed to unacknowledged philanthropic work. However for the purpose of fundraising and generating as much attention as possible to the needs of its neighbors in Aurora, General Steel is presenting its efforts publically and challenging other businesses to do what they can to help the Aurora Victim Relief Fund meet its goal of $1 million.
As the pioneer in the pre-engineered steel building industry, General Steel has sold over $1 Billion in domestic and international pre-engineered steel buildings. For every building project, General Steel assigns a team of experienced professionals to guide its customers through building design, selection of accessories, procurement of steel, and provides expert erectors to assemble steel buildings in every corner of the United States.
