When PR NewsChannel offered its services for free or at a discount following Hurricane Harvey, it didn’t realize that less than two weeks later, its own corporate headquarters, and nearly all its employees, would be in the path of Hurricane Irma.
Still the newswire is extending the same offer to any company, professional or individual providing relief for Hurricane Irma: Those offering services for free, receive PR NewsChannel’s services free. Those offering to help but charging a discounted rate, receive a significant price break.
“Hurricane Irma has devastated so much already and it hasn’t even entered Florida yet,” says Glenn Selig, founder and principal at PR NewsChannel. “To the extent that we can connect businesses that want to help and reporters and news outlets that want to spread word of that aid, we want to do that.
“Hurricane Irma is even more personal than Hurricane Harvey. I live in Tampa. And we’re in the line of fire. I used to live in Southeast Texas, and frequented many of the areas now devastated by Hurricane Harvey. This is an easy decision.”
PR NewsChannel says it understands there are many businesses across the United States and beyond that want to help, and have services to help, but don’t have the ability to get that message out to consumers and reporters. And that’s where PR NewsChannel comes in. The company is a press release newswire and content syndicator. It distributes news to consumers and news outlets.
“We are open for business. Our staff will be working from the safety of their homes or wherever they evacuate. Their respective families come first and we will do everything we can to support them.”
PR NewsChannel says it is shifting its critical operations to Huntsville, Alabama, where the company opened a small bureau only a month ago. Adam Farragut moved there from its Tampa headquarters to run the bureau.
“We don’t have cots, beds or food to offer. But connecting businesses looking to help with the news media and the people is something we can do to assist during this epic storm and its aftermath,” says Farragut from Huntsville.
“We pray for the families dealing with this catastrophe and salute the first responders performing heroic and dangerous work,” adds Selig.
Companies that want to take advantage of this offer from PR NewsChannel should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
