CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Northern Trust announced today it will make $125,000 in contributions,
primarily to the American Red Cross, to support Hurricane / Tropical
Storm Harvey relief efforts in the Houston area.
“As evidence of Harvey’s devastation continues to mount, our hearts go
out to residents along the Gulf Coast,” Northern Trust Chairman and
Chief Executive Officer Frederick H. Waddell said. “We are fortunate
that all our Houston-area staff members and locations remain safe, and
recognize the process of recovery will be arduous. Northern Trust is
committed to supporting the region during these trying times.”
Northern Trust has been in Houston for more than 25 years, employing
approximately 100 people in two locations — Houston’s River Oaks and
Tanglewood neighborhoods. After being closed for three days, both
offices opened on Thursday with full bank lobby services.

Coast (2012), Japan earthquake and Pacific tsunami (2011), floods in
eastern Australia (2011) and the earthquake in Haiti (2010).
