Building on earlier emergency contributions of products and supplies, a $1 million donation to support victims and aid in recovery efforts related to the devastating terrorist attack on the World Trade Center has been announced by Panasonic on behalf of parent company Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. and the Panasonic family of companies in the Americas.
headquarters are just a few miles from lower Manhattan;
many of us here were eyewitnesses to the terrible events
of September 11, and some employees have close family members
who are missing," said Don Iwatani, chairman of Matsushita
Electric Corporation of America (Panasonic). "As an
active part of the metropolitan-area business community
for more than four decades, our company and its employees
feel compelled to contribute to relief efforts. My hope
is that the funds we provide will help at least some of
our neighbors begin to recover from this great tragedy."
to the $1 million donation, Panasonic gave immediate assistance
to attack victims by supplying a truckload of Panasonic-brand
flashlights, head-mounted lamps and batteries to assist
emergency personnel in searching through piles of debris
and rubble, particularly at night or in low-light conditions;
contributing "Toughbook" ruggedized notebook computers
for use by local, state and federal agencies on duty at
the disaster site; and conducting an employee drive to collect
many clothing and comfort items urgently needed by relief
In addition, Panasonic has established a matching fund for employee contributions. And subsidiary and affiliate companies throughout North and South America are coordinating local fund-raising efforts among their employees.
