Simpson Strong-TiePleasanton, Calif. – Simpson Strong-Tie has donated $50,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to assist Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

The devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey continue to be felt throughout Houston. Thousands of people remain stranded while Harvey continues its harmful path as a tropical storm, expected to drop historic levels of rainfall in Texas.

The Red Cross has ranked Harvey a Level 7, the highest level of disaster designation within the American Red Cross. The organization has mobilized disaster relief workers, emergency response vehicles and supplies throughout the area while continuously monitoring the situation to provide needed support.

“The number of people affected by this disaster is profound and devastating. We are actively pursuing additional ways we can help locally,” said Simpson Strong-Tie CEO Karen Colonias. “We will keep the communities in Texas in our thoughts.”
