The Hands That Give plan covers a range of emergencies such as:
- Natural disasters;
- personal crisis;
- the need for additional emergency resources; and
- an emergency that impacts customers.
- Travel, lodging and food
- emergency supplies; and
- emergency equipment (i.e., generates, technology and other tools).
Participation in the program costs $250 per member location (with a maximum $1,000 per HTG member company) and $100 per owner/executive (and a maximum of $500 HTG member company). Also, several vendors -- including ConnectWise, Hewlett-Packard, Level Platforms and Xilocore -- have pledged to support Hands That Give with various resources, ranging from financial support to equipment donations and personnel support.
Perhaps most notably: The Hands That Give program is optional to HTG members. That sounds like unspoken confidence from Sorensen that the program will gain critical mass without forcing the hand of HTG members.
