Kuraray America Inc. recently donated $10,000 to the Second Harvest Foodbank in Fayetteville, N.C., which serves seven counties in the area. In response to recent damage caused by Hurricane Matthew, the company also provided the foodbank with a refrigerated trailer to assist with food deliveries around the community. Kuraray employs more than 100 people in the Fayetteville area where they manufacture Trosifol and SentryGlas interlayers used in laminated safety glass.
“We hope that this donation is the beginning of a strong partnership with Kuraray and Second Harvest,” says Ross Crews, plant manager at Kuraray America. “Many of our employees know the devastation of flooding first hand, and hope that this donation can help people get back on their feet as quickly as possible.”
