Durham Company's Employees Use Bonus To Help In Relief Effort
Posted October 18, 2001
DURHAM, N.C. — A Durham company has given its 183 full-time employees a $2,000 bonus.
Measurement Incorporated, a company that develops standardized tests used in all public schools, gave the employees a bonus to use as they wish. Some employees elected to give it to charities.
"About half of it will go to the American Red Cross," said employee Larry Conaway. "We had made one contribution to them, but we had hoped we could do more. Now, we can do more."
Triangle United Way says contributions are down by about five percent because more money is going to help with relief from the terrorist attacks.
