CHICAGO, Sep. 05 /CSRwire/ - Northern Trust announced today it will make $125,000 in contributions, primarily to the American Red Cross, to support Hurricane / Tropical Storm Harvey relief efforts in the Houston area.
"As evidence of Harvey’s devastation continues to mount, our hearts go out to residents along the Gulf Coast,” Northern Trust Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Frederick H. Waddell said. "We are fortunate that all our Houston-area staff members and locations remain safe, and recognize the process of recovery will be arduous. Northern Trust is committed to supporting the region during these trying times.”
