Red Cross Donation


CHARLESTON, SC, July 25, 2012 – The American Red Cross is pleased to announce that today, Streit USA Armoring presented a $5,000 check to the American Red Cross in support of Red Cross programs and services provided to the Lowcountry community.

Streit USA Armoring, established in July 2007 by Eric Carlson and a business partner, is a leading U S manufacturer of armored vehicles for military, law enforcement and commercial customers.  Streit realizes the importance of the Red Cross both in the local community and throughout the world. “As a global company, we see the need for Red Cross services and are pleased to partner with the Red Cross in providing services wherever and whenever they are needed,” said Eric Carlson President of Streit USA Armoring. “Considering the change in focus of the Trident United Way of no longer funding Red Cross emergency services in the community, I am honored to present this check on behalf of Streit USA, to the American Red Cross where it is certainly needed.”

Eric Carlson, President of Streit USA Armoring, is shown here presenting the check to Louise Welch Williams, Chief Executive Officer of the American Red Cross, Charleston Region in front of a one of the recently armored OEM vehicles at the Streit USA Armoring facility in North Charleston.
