Pelican™ Sends Vital Survival and Rescue Items to Provide Help in Haiti
Pelican Donates Head Lamps and Flashlights; Valued at $100,000
January 21, 2010 – Pelican Products, Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced lighting systems and virtually indestructible cases, today announced its contribution of $100,000 worth of head lamps and flashlights to the Haiti relief effort. The in-kind donation will help aid and assist rescuers, volunteers and emergency response teams in their relief efforts in Haiti. Emergency triage shelters are without lighting, so head lamps allow doctors to treat patients in completely dark locations.
“Our prayers go out to the people of Haiti,” said Lyndon Faulkner, Pelican’s President and CEO. “It is impossible to see the devastation and not want to help. We hope that our donation, along with the donations of others across the country, will help bring some relief to the people of Haiti.”
Pelican™ cases are also being utilized by emergency response teams to transport and carry supplies to Haiti. Pelican cases are some of the most durable, longest lasting protector cases and are engineered to be completely watertight, crushproof and dustproof.
Additionally, a link to the American Red Cross donation page has been added to the company’s popular homepage- www.pelican.com.
