Jelmar Donates $10,000 to Haiti

As relief efforts continue in Haiti, the Skokie-based family-owned business, Jelmar, is determined to make a difference.  The household cleaning manufacturer which makes CLR and Tarn-X brand products, had donated $10,000 and cleaning supplies to The Salvation Army's Haiti relief effort.

"My heart goes out to the people of Haiti," said Jelmar President Alison Gutterman.  "Our donation will be just a small fraction of the aid needed to help with the visible pain and suffering in Haiti, but right now it's important for businesses to come together to help in any way they can, no matter how big or small the contribution."

Financial contributions made to The Salvation Army will provide food, water and other reliefe materials to people affected by the earthquake in Haiti.
