DDL Inc, a leading package, product and material testing laboratory, has today issued a nationwide plea for US companies to contribute to the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.

For DDL, Hurricane Katrina could not be closer to home. While most Minnesotans have watched from afar, DDL HR Director & Office Manager, Demetria Echols, felt the tragedy first-hand when her 18 year-old son, a freshman at the University of New Orleans, was caught up in the chaos.

“My son, Azriel, had moved himself and all of his belongings into his dorm room only a few days before the hurricane hit,” said Echols. “Fortunately, he was able to evacuate to Oklahoma, but his dorm room and everything he owned was destroyed in the flood.”

Azriel, like so many of his fellow New Orleans residents, was lucky to walk away with his life. Having transferred to the University of Wisconsin to continue his degree in Forensics, he is reliant upon America’s support to help him re-build his life.

“When Azriel returned home, all he had were the clothes on his back,” said Echols. “It’s true that the hurricane has brought out the worst in some people, but I have also witnessed tremendous kindness."

Echols is amazed by and extremely grateful for the kindness her son has encountered. A family friend is collecting donations in her beauty shop and the University of Wisconsin has even agreed to waiver tuition fees for the first semester.

“There are so many Americans out there that need our help,” said Patrick Nolan, DDL, COO. “This is why DDL has contributed to the relief efforts and urges other companies and individuals nationwide to do the same.”

So far, DDL has raised a total of $3800, including employee donations and corporate matching contributions for the people affected by Hurricane Katrina.
