Infosys USA Foundation Contributes $50,000 To The Leggett & Platt Benevolence Fund Benefiting The Joplin Tornado Victims
Carthage, Missouri - August 18, 2011: In response to the devastation caused by the tornadoes that struck Joplin, Missouri earlier this year, the Infosys USA Foundation announced that it has donated $50,000 to the Leggett & Platt Benevolence Fund to support relief efforts, established by Leggett & Platt and facilitated by the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. The tornadoes resulted in 95 Leggett & Platt employees affected with a total or partial property loss and tragically took the life of one employee.
"It's a privilege to work for a company that has a huge appetite to help communities in their time of need," stated Hunt Winston who leads Infosys' Discrete Manufacturing Segment. "We hope this act of giving makes a difference for the Joplin tornado victims."
