The American Red Cross of NH & VT thanks TFMoran for generously supporting Hurricane Harvey and Irma relief efforts

Red Cross visit to TFMoran for Harvey & Irma Hurricane Relief Donation

Dylan Cruess, COO, TFMoran and Maria Devlin, CEO, American Red Cross-NH & VT

In early November 2017, Maria Devlin, CEO, American Red Cross-NH & VT, visited both the Bedford and Portsmouth offices of TFMoran to thank the company and staff for generously supporting the Hurricane Harvey and Irma relief efforts. Both offices were presented with a wall plaque, as Ms. Devlin explained how the relief efforts were progressing. This wasn’t her first time visiting TFMoran, back in 2013 she presented TFMoran with a plaque for a financial contribution to the American Red Cross’ Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund.

“The employees of TFMoran have shown time and time again that they are willing to pitch in to help out the people in need whether they are in the next town, or half way around the world.”  said Dylan Cruess, COO of TFMoran. “That’s the kind of people we are proud to employ here, compassionate and generous.”

TFMoran, Inc. and TFMoran staff have contributed to the Hurricanes Harvey and Irma relief efforts by donating to the American Red Cross. Together the staff donated $2,885, which combined with TFMoran’s $2,500 gives us a total donation of $5,385.00!

Hurricane Harvey was a Category 3 hurricane that devastated eastern Texas and western Louisiana. Harvey hit the gulf coast of the U.S on Friday, August 25, 2017, bringing 130 mph winds and over 52 inches of rain! Experts estimate up to $180 billion in damage. Residents of the affected areas have lost all their belongings, leaving them homeless, hungry and lost on where to go next. The Red Cross has sent volunteers, donated money and food, and set up shelters. Almost immediately after the storm hit, volunteers headed into Houston to help, getting people safely into shelters and supplying them with food and blankets.

Less than two weeks later, Hurricane Irma started out as a Category 5 hurricane hitting parts of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Haiti on September 5, 2017, leaving heavy flooding and damage. Next, the Florida Keys suffered severe damage on September 8th and 9th as Irma became a Category 4. Making its way to the mainland, Miami and southern Florida, the hurricane was downgraded to a Category 3, with winds of over 110 mph, heavy rains, and fierce winds for the entire state. An estimated 15 million people in Florida were without power with an estimated $100 billion damage. Florida’s Governor ordered  approximately 6.3 million people to evacuate before the hurricane hit.

40! Congrats to Joe Sears for 40 Years at TFMoran!

TFMoran kicked off the weekend with a “TGIF” all for Joe Sears, celebrating his 40-Year-Anniversary with the Company. Graduating college in 1976 with a BS in Business Management, Joe came out of school seeking a job at a Navy shipyard. While waiting for that position to begin, Joe took a temporary position at TFMoran. Lucky for us, temporary became permanent. Beginning in 1977 in Manchester, NH, Mr. Sears was amongst the original TFM crew. He has done everything from courier, file indexer, blueprint maker, office manager, receptionist to fix-it-man. Mr. Sears has been a loyal employee ever since. Beginning as a land surveyor / service technician, Joe tried out almost every position in the office, and is currently co-receptionist and manages archives of plans/documents. He also does all filing, mailing, packaging, and copying for the engineers. TFM President, Bob Duval, gave a speech thanking Joe for all he has done and recognizing his positive attributes to the company stating “Joe always makes sure that any plans and important documents get to who and where they’re supposed to, professionally and on time.”

The TGIF Celebration of Joe’s 40 Years concluded with a make your own sundae bar and refreshments. TFM employees enjoyed each other’s company and congratulated Joe on his many dedicated years here at the Company. Also in attendance was Joe’s wife Suzanne. Joe ended the TGIF with a speech on his time here at TFM and thanked all of the people who have made an impact on him. We thank Joe for all he has done, and appreciate all he will do in the future.
