Deere & Co. announced today it will make a $1 million cash donation to support Habitat Hammers Back, a long-term recovery initiative organized by Habitat for Humanity International to help repair and rebuild communities ravaged by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Its commitment adds to several other relief efforts by Deere, including an annual $500,000 contribution by the John Deere Foundation to the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program, which helps the Red Cross pre-position supplies, secure shelters, maintain vehicles and train volunteers so that response can begin immediately. Deere employees have also made personal contributions totaling more than $100,000 to the Red Cross, local food banks and other aid organizations in the hurricane-stricken areas, which was matched by the John Deere Foundation. The company’s business divisions and dealers have also deployed equipment in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean to help in recovery efforts.
