Hardy Diagnostics Gathers Donations to Aid Typhoon Relief in Philippines

In the wake of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines two weeks ago, Hardy Diagnostics’ employees have banded together to support those in need in the affected region.

Many employees have relatives living in the Philippines. After a brainstorming meeting to determine what the greatest needs were, Hardy employees are sending clothes, shoes, bedding, personal hygiene products and donations of money to support those in need.

The donations raised by Hardy Diagnostics will be sent to some of the most devastated neighborhoods on the island of Cebu.

Sue Pruett, regulatory affairs associate at Hardy Diagnostics, explained how much the company’s contribution means to her.

“My son, Brian Pruett, is a missionary pilot in the Philippines and has been flying relief missions for the past two weeks,” she said. “I am so thankful for the opportunity to support Hardy’s efforts to help those who lost their homes during the typhoon.”

Hardy Diagnostics’ Community Action Committee organized the relief effort, modeled after the food drive they put on once a year to support the Salvation Army. Boxes were placed around the company with lists of the items that are most needed, and employees give as they can.

A culture of giving and the close-knit community within the company results in employees working together in times of crisis to serve those in the Santa Maria community, and around the world.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
