Superstorm Sandy may have passed through months ago, but her devastating effects continue to plague those who were left behind in her wake. There is no way to turn back the hands of time, or to reverse the damage that has been done, but we can rebuild and recover, and major developer Visioneer has plans to help the victims of Sandy do just that. Read on to learn more about this inspiring story.
Who is Visioneer? Visioneer, based in Pleasanton, California, is a global producer of mobile and desktop scanner and document imaging software technology. Visioneer CFO and Sustainability Office, Greg Elder, grew up in Staten Island, and is therefore personally affected by the devastation of Sandy. As a company, Visioneer has a history of philanthropy and environmental awareness, and this spirit of giving back is now benefitting the people who are in the midst of recovering from this upsetting act of God.
About the Where There is a Need Program. Visioneer is providing aid to the victims of Superstorm Sandy through a long-established program called “Where There is a Need.” The Where There is a Need program identifies organizations across the globe that are playing a role in improving communities and peoples’ quality of life, and then steps up to help meet the financial needs of those organizations. In the case of Superstorm Sandy, the organization being helped by Visioneer’s Where There is a Need program is the American Red Cross.
These numbers provide hope. At the three-month tally in January of 2013, the American Red Cross reported distribution of roughly 5 million relief supplies to victims of Sandy. Furthermore, nearly five and a half million meals and snacks have been passed out to families in need. This equates to over 67,000 people in New York alone.
Calling all Visioneer customers. Customer support is integral to Visioneer’s Where There is a Need Program. How can customers provide support in the Sandy relief effort? They simply need to register their new scanners at visioneer.com or xeroxscanners.com. For every scanner registered, Visioneer will donate $1 to international disaster relief funds through the Where There is a Need program.
Big business is not always all about making money. In the case of Visioneer, big business also means giving back to the community in a big way. Visioneer is really making a difference for families whose lives were unexpectedly disrupted by Superstorm Sandy. You, too, can be a part of that difference.
