When our fellow employees suffer tragedy, we want to lend a helping hand. By working together through the SMS Cares Fund, we can provide vital assistance to our coworkers.

SMS Cares is a natural disaster and personal tragedy relief fund that was created in response to Hurricane Katrina and other Gulf coast hurricanes of 2005 that devastated the region. SMS Cares has continued to help many families throughout the nation, who have been affected by personal tragedy. Some have been victims of random acts of violence, others are hit with unexpected healthcare issues or deaths in the family.

It’s easy to help your community by making a donation to SMS Cares through payroll deduction. Giving just a few dollars a week can make a big difference in someone’s life, maybe even yours.
