In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Simpson Strong-Tie announced it will make a $25,000 donation to assist in the relief response and recovery efforts throughout the East Coast.
This donation was given directly to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund and will aid in providing food, shelter, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by the hurricane. The company will also be matching employees’ personal contributions to the Red Cross and other nonprofit disaster relief organizations.
“Our deepest sympathies go out to those who have been impacted by this tragedy,” said Simpson Strong-Tie President Terry Kingsfather. “We hope that through the combined national support efforts, the East Coast will be able to quickly recover and rebuild the communities that have been devastated.”
