Hilco Helps: Hilco Global Stands with Ukraine
Hilco Global that it will donate $100,000 through it’s Hilco Helps initiative to aid and support the people in Ukraine and its refugees that have fled to other countries.
Jeffrey B. Hecktman, CEO and Founder of Hilco Global said, “The attacks on the nation of Ukraine this past week have been tragic and unsettling. As a global company with offices across the world, we have watched in horror the unprovoked attacks by Russia on the peace-loving people of Ukraine and we condemn the killing of innocent civilians which has caused thousands to flee the country and leave their homes and lives behind.”
Hilco Global, through its Hilco Helps initiative, is donating the first $75,000 split equally between Sunflowers of Peace and United Help Ukraine, as they represent two organizations the company feels are having an immediate impact. On top of this contribution, Hilco Global is committing another $25,000 (for a total of $100,000) by matching $1 dollar for each like, repost and share on social media that highlights any of the philanthropic organizations listed below:
