The Matthews Co. Inc. and land surveyors from around the United States have teamed up to help bring Christmas to the families of surveyors who are out of work due to the economy through a program called Surveyors Helping Surveyors 2009. “The economy has had such a huge impact on our profession,” says Kate Matthews, president and CEO of The Matthews Co. “We saw the need and wanted to do something tangible to help out.”

Over the last few months, 12 surveying firms joined The Matthews Co. in contributing $10,000 to purchase 100 $100 Wal-Mart gift cards. The gift cards will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis to qualified individuals in the surveying profession. Individuals can nominate themselves or other surveyors who have lost their jobs. Nominees must have worked in the land surveying profession with a recent work history of at least two years; they must have been laid off due to the economy; and they must live in the United States. All 100 gift cards will be sent to the recipients via a FedEx the first week in December.
