Glass America Donates to Red Cross in Light of Recent Tornadoes, Assists with Aftermath
June 8, 2011

Brandon Cottles of Glass America presents the company's donation to the Red Cross office in Knoxville, Tenn.

Glass America recently made a donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund on May 25 in response to the recent tornadoes that have struck many areas of the United States.

“Many homes and vehicles were damaged and destroyed as the violent twisters wreaked havoc on entire communities and claimed hundreds of lives,” says Brandon Cottles, a regional manager at Glass America. “Glass America is contributing to the clean-up efforts, while pledging to go above and beyond for those who require auto glass repairs and replacement caused by the tornadoes. We want to help residents and drivers to get back on their feet again.”

Glass America has seen an uptick in business at its locations in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee, where the company operates as Auto Glass Service, and company officials say they expect the influx to last at least another month. To accommodate customers, Glass America employees are working overtime to provide services during this difficult time.

“We didn’t have power for six days at our some of our locations,” says Cottles, “We installed generators so we could keep the service centers open and be available for customers who needed auto glass repairs and replacements. The roads were cleared pretty quickly, so our installers are able to provide mobile services which are helpful for people who are trying to get their lives back on track again.”
