The Cisco Foundation has launched a campaign to match employee contributions up to $1 million, and Cisco employees are answering the call.

The unprecedented flooding unleashed in Texas from Hurrincane Harvey has left thousands of people in need and people all over the country are looking to help.

The Cisco community is no different. The Cisco Foundation has increased its Hurricane Harvey campaign to $1 million, supporting the American Red Cross and seven additional responding non-profits (Houston Food Bank, North Texas Food Bank, National ASPCA, Islamic Relief USA, Catholic Charities USA, Save the Children and Habitat for Humanity)  in their efforts to provide aid.

The Foundation will match Cisco employees' eligible donations to the Texas Hurricane Harvey fund, up to $1 million and $10,000 per employee. To date, Cisco employees have donated more than $367,329. Together with the Cisco match, Cisco has raised $734,658.

Employees can go here to get the match. 

In addition to that, The Cisco Foundation has also committed a $250,000 grant to the American Red Cross to further support their relief efforts.

Members of Cisco TacOps and the Disaster Incident Response Team are also in Texas ready to respond to requests from agencies for communications support.
