Georgia-Pacific aids tornado victims

Georgia-Pacific (GP) has announced an aid package to victims of the Southeastern tornados last month that includes cash, products and matching donations.

GP will contribute $50,000 to The Salvation Army for recovery effort in the Southeast and $10,000 to the American Red Cross in Alabama. The company will also match up to a total of $50,000 in donations made by employees of GP or any other Koch company to the Salvation Army’s efforts between now and July 8.

GP has also donated bath tissue, paper towels and tabletop covers to temporary shelters in several states. 

“Many communities near our facilities have been impacted,” said president and CEO Jim Hannan, noting that half of the company’s employees live and work in southeastern states affected by the tornadoes. “We also have a number of employees who have suffered losses of loved ones and property,” he added.
