Last week Intervala concluded its school supply drive to benefit victims of Hurricane Harvey. Our employees came together to collect over 1,000 new supplies, including hundreds of crayons, notebooks, rulers, erasers and pencils, for children affected by the disaster. President and CEO Teresa Huber was on hand to help with the delivery. We partnered with Pittsburgh-based Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF) to have these much-needed items delivered.

The category 4 hurricane dumped over 30 trillion gallons of water over Texas and Louisiana and forced more than 30,000 people, including many children, into emergency shelters. BBF has served 149 countries worldwide with over 105,000 tons of medicines, medical equipment, textbooks, educational supplies, and emergency disaster aid since its founding in 1958. A huge thank you to our employees for their amazing generosity and to BBF for all they do!

Intervala hit the links to benefit Habitat for Humanity. Our company was a threesome sponsor for customer Komatsu Mining Corp’s seventh annual golf outing, held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Including our participation, the 2017 event generated $85K to support Habitat’s efforts in the Washington Park neighborhood of Milwaukee, just a few miles from a Komatsu facility. To date, this neighborhood has seen a 70 percent reduction in vacant lots and blighted properties, as well as a 48 percent reduction in crime. By the end of 2017, Habitat estimates its efforts will provide 215 Washington Park families with safe and stable homes. We are proud to support our customer Komatsu Mining Corp and its commitment to helping Habitat for Humanity provide safe and affordable housing to those in need. Click here to read more.
