PPA Employees Contribute $6,458 to the Red Cross Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund

Following the September 27th board meeting, employees of the Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA) proudly presented a check for $6,458 to the Red Cross Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund.

In presenting the check, Board Chairman, Joseph Ashdale stated, “The hardships being endured from hurricanes across the country, and most recently Puerto Rico, prompted our employees to raise these funds for ongoing relief efforts. With many PPA employees’ families living in the disaster stricken areas, we most certainly want to play our part as recovery efforts continue.

Clarena Tolson, PPA Executive Director, continued, “It’s hard to fathom what many of these disaster stricken families are going through right now. Our employees felt it was imperative to contribute to the much needed relief efforts.”  

In addition to donations being made through payroll deductions, PPA employees also made contributions at donation jars throughout PPA facilities. Funds collected will directly benefit all areas recently affected by  Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
