United Rentals, Inc. (NYSE:URI), the world’s largest equipment rental company, has pledged a $200,000 donation to the American Red Cross to assist with disaster relief following the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.

Michael Kneeland, chief executive officer of United Rentals, said, “Our hearts go out to the countless people in Texas and Louisiana who suffered personal harm, property damage and displacement, and to the families of the victims who lost their lives. These hard-hit communities are our communities as well, and we stand ready to help in every way that we can.”

Within the company, the employee-funded, 501(c)(3) United Compassion Fund has already granted approximately $100,000 to colleagues in need, and is prepared for aid to increase as the waters subside. Where possible, displaced employees are being given temporary housing, and volunteer efforts have been mobilized from among the 13,700 United Rentals employees in North America.

United Rentals, which has a large presence in the Gulf States, is asking customers to call 800-UR-RENTS (800-877-3687) with any inquiries in the affected areas.
