In other hurricane-related news, PRH's unlimited corporate match for all U.S. employee charitable donations for related relief efforts has been extended through September 30. PRH is also making a significant financial contribution to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (Binc) and Texas Library Association to provide additional relief for booksellers, schools and libraries in Texas, Florida and other affected regions. Penguin Random House is also working with Binc on a scholarship for affected booksellers. Information regarding the scholarship will be announced through Binc in the coming months.
Recently, with the assistance of the Maryland Performance Diesel organization, PRH Westminster distribution center employees rallied to donate seven pallets of supplies (including bottled water, non-perishable food items, blankets and toiletries) for flood victims in Texas. The publisher is also continuing its coordinated book donations through various PRH charitable partners, including First Book, the Barbara Bush Foundation and the National Council of Teachers of English.
