OKLAHOMA CITY – April 2, 2020 – Jasco, an industry leader in home electronics and lighting products, today announces it will donate $1 million to support COVID-19 relief efforts in Oklahoma and across the nation.
The company is reaching out to potential partners to determine how to maximize the impact of the $1 million it will donate and will focus on a combination of national and local faith-based organizations. The company hopes to provide a range of assistance, from helping families meet basic needs as well as donating personal protective equipment to hospital workers putting their own lives at risk to care for others.
This pledge was born from the ethos of Jasco: to serve and improve the lives of others. For more than a decade, the company has donated 50 percent of its net profits to faith-based humanitarian causes like water, food, shelter and disaster relief.
“At Jasco, we are committed to serving our team members, our customers and our communities. We give God all the glory for all that He is doing through Jasco and our charity partners that put their faith in action to meet the needs of God’s people every day,” said Jason Trice, CEO of Jasco. “It is in this spirit that we are pledging to give $1 million to faith-based organizations that are helping people affected by COVID-19. This is an unprecedented time, but we remain united to serve our communities in this time of need.”
As an essential business, Jasco is going above and beyond government regulations to help protect its own people – mandating that our employees who are able to perform their jobs work from home. We are also providing masks and gloves for employees working in our distribution center, enhancing cleaning procedures, and establishing a fund to help employees who may be struggling during this time.
