Response

Versalift stands with local power companies and first responders. Every year, blizzards, tornadoes, hurricanes, mudslides and floods play havoc in communities across the United States. After the storm has passed, communities need all the help they can get to pick up the pieces and put their lives back together again. The efforts to restore power are essential to restoring the safety and sense of normalcy in a community, which is why Versalift is dedicated to providing support to local power companies and first responders. We know you buy Versalift products because they are, in part, so reliable, and we know that you are going to be counting on us for reliable products and services to aid in recovery. As a company headquarted in Waco, Texas, recovery efforts for Hurricaine Harvey impacting our friends and family in Houston are top of mind. With operations in almost every state, we are just starting to understand the demand for clean up efforts in the wake of Hurricain Irma in Florida.

VERSALIFT SUPPORT

Versalift will match donations made to the American Red Cross to help those affected by the recently natural disasters in Texas and Florida.

Additional charities we support are:

Operation Supply Drop: Another veterans organization sending volunteers to Texas. You can give here.
