-- The Distributor Invites VARs at Event to Assemble “Comfort Kits“ and Will Donate $1 for Each, In Conjunction with Fund-Matching and Twitter-based Donations from Lenovo --

HARRISBURG, PA - May 7, 2018 - D&H Distributing, a major provider of SMB and consumer technologies to the North American high-tech channel, is inviting attendees of the Lenovo Accelerate event in Las Vegas to participate in a fundraiser for the American Red Cross. VARs can visit the D&H kit station in the foyer between the Latour and Lafite ballrooms at the event on Tuesday, May 8 to assemble Red Cross “Comfort Kits.“ The kits are comprised of toiletries and personal amenities to be distributed to victims of disasters who are in need.

For every comfort kit created, D&H will donate $1 to the Red Cross. The Lenovo Accelerate event takes place May 7 - 9 at The Wynn Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. D&H is the Exclusive Sponsor of this fundraiser and will be exhibiting in the Solutions Showcase located in the Lafite ballroom.

In addition to D&H's donation, Lenovo will donate $1 for any tweet made using the hashtags #LenovoAccelerate18 and #Donation during the conference. Lenovo will also match 50% of VAR donations made directly to Red Cross via www.redcross.org/lenovo during the month of May, up to a maximum of $25,000 total.

The Red Cross responds to approximately 64,000 disasters annually in the United States, a great majority of which are housefires that can leave victims temporarily bereft of their homes and possessions. The Comfort Kits offer toiletries and necessities for people enduring these unfortunate emergencies.

“We're happy to engage our customers in a chance to give back by creating the Comfort Kits for individuals,“ said D&H Executive Director Tom Guagliardi. “It's literally a hands-on opportunity to offer helpful materials for disaster victims across the country. And we're proud to be working with such a gracious partner like Lenovo, which has volunteered to support our effort by matching a portion of VAR-based donations.“

“We hope more partners like D&H will step up and support the critical work of the Red Cross in communities across our country,“ said Executive Director of Lenovo Channel Rob Cato.

Resellers can call their representatives at (800) 340-1001 for information or speak to a D&H representative at the Lenovo Accelerate Event.
