Diana Jackson of the financial services firm Edward Jones announced today that her firm has donated $5000 to The American Red Cross to aid the victims of the mudslide that recently devastated the local Washington community of Oso.
"This is a tragedy that hits close to home," Jackson said. "Our offices are located in the affected area, and our financial advisors and their staffs work and live in the area. We hope this donation can help ease the suffering of our friends, neighbors, colleagues and clients."
