Bridgestone Retail Operations Helps Teammates Affected by Louisiana Floods
In recent weeks, record flooding impacted thousands of people in Louisiana, including many Bridgestone Retail Operations (BSRO) teammates. Fortunately, all 81 teammates in the Baton Rouge and Lafayette areas remained safe, but 13 suffered catastrophic losses of their homes, vehicles and personal possessions. Some were rescued by boat and left with nothing but the clothes on their backs.
As news broke of the dire situation in Louisiana, BSRO quickly responded with a donation from the Associate Assistance Fund (AAF), which is comprised of contributions from BSRO teammates across the country. Additional personal contributions from BSRO teammates provided further support. Several vendors and customers also stepped up to offer assistance, including QMI, NAPA and Enterprise.
