Summit Electric Supply President and CEO Victor R. Jury Jr. announced a commitment of $50,000 to the American Red Cross for Japan relief efforts, including a $25,000 cash contribution and $25,000 company match for donations by Summit associates. "As the scope and scale of the tragic effects of the recent earthquake in Japan are revealed, it is impossible to watch from the sidelines and do nothing,” Jury said.

The donation will be made through the American Red Cross operations in Albuquerque, Summit Electric's headquarters. Summit Electric provided a similar contribution to other relief organizations last year for Haiti following that country's devastating earthquake.
