The IDEX Foundation has made a generous donation of $10,000 to the American Red Cross in support of Disaster Relief of the Valley Fires in Northern California. The fire that started on September 12, 2015 has burned over 76,000 acres, evacuated 17,000+ people and animals, destroyed over 1,300 homes, took the lives of 3 people, and had over 4,000 firefighters involved to help contain and fight the fire. Today, the fire is now 97% contained. This fire has been named the “the fastest-growing wildfire in California history” and the “worst tragedy Lake County has ever seen.”
The IDEX Foundation’s Mission, which was established in 2014, is to engage our customers, shareholders, and employees to create value and positively impact the communities in which we live and work.
