CRS Provides Sandy Relief

By March 27, 2013Uncategorized

CRS provided support to Sandy victims through monetary contributions and wrap-up administration.

Through our Wrap-up Administration

On October 29th, Hurricane Sandy made its way up the eastern seaboard and made landfall in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut which damaged thousands of homes and businesses.  CRS has numerous projects in the Mid-Atlantic Region, so we had several contractors affected by the storm from having direct damage to their business or having their electricity shut down for weeks due to tree and storm damage.  With contractors having difficulty providing enrollments, certificate renewals, and monthly payroll reporting, we were able to work with them in this difficult time to make their lives easier.  We were able to take monthly payroll totals over the phone and give a longer grace period for contactors enrollment information until their businesses were fully operational and running.  We hope that everyone makes a full recovery as fast as possible and we were happy to provide any assistance we could.

Through City Harvest

All CRS employees donated to City Harvest and CRS matched all employee donations.
