Hunter Douglas donates $350,000 to Colorado flood relief

Custom window coverings manufacturer Hunter Douglas has donated $350,000 to two nonprofits working to help those affected by the recent flooding in Colorado: Foothills Flood Relief Fund, a nonprofit run by Foothills United Way, and veteran service organization Team Rubicon.

President and CEO Mary Hopkins presented the donations to United Way president and CEO Mimi Vilord and Team Rubicon co-founder William McNulty at Hunter Douglas' Pearl River headquarters.

"On behalf of all Hunter Douglas employees throughout North America, I am honored to present these donations to these two organizations that have been crucial to providing assistance to those affected by the Colorado flooding: the Foothills Flood Relief Fund, created by Foothills United Way in response to the devastation caused by the severe flooding in Boulder and Broomfield Counties, and Team Rubicon, which mobilized veteran volunteers to the area," Hopkins said.

The company matched donations from employees on a two-for-one basis: $115,000 was raised by Hunter Douglas employees, to which the company added another $235,000.

Several employees at the Hunter Douglas Window Fashions Division in Broomfield, Colo., were affected by the flooding.
