TAMKO Building Products, Inc. has proudly donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross to assist with their Hurricane Harvey disaster relief efforts in Houston and the surrounding area. TAMKO recently presented the funds at the Joplin, Missouri, Red Cross office.
“Thanks to generous partners like TAMKO, the American Red Cross is there, providing food, shelter and comfort to people affected by Hurricane Harvey,” said Stacy Burks, executive director of the American Red Cross Southern Missouri. “We have deployed over a dozen local [Joplin-area] volunteers. They join more than 3,000 Red Cross disaster workers who will continue to support families as they begin to recover and rebuild.”
In the past, TAMKO has donated to the Red Cross to assist with disaster recovery from tornadoes that ravaged areas where TAMKO operates, including a deadly EF-5 tornado in 2011 that struck the town of Joplin where TAMKO is headquartered.
TAMKO’s president and CEO David Humphreys, said, “The devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey are heartbreaking. TAMKO and its employees have witnessed first-hand what the American Red Cross can do to help in these types of disaster situations. We make this donation in the spirit of kindness that Houston and its neighbors so desperately need now.”
