Sep. 5, 2017 - International Paper has pledged $1 million to support disaster relief efforts in the communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Tropical Storm Harvey.

The International Paper Foundation will contribute $750,000 to the American Red Cross chapters in Texas and Louisiana, and will contribute $250,000 to Feeding America.

A producer of renewable fibre-based packaging, pulp and paper products, the company has already produced 100,000 boxes to be donated to the American Red Cross and Feeding America. These boxes will be used to deliver food, water and other critical supplies to those in need.

“Our hearts go out to the many families impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” said Mark Sutton, International Paper chairman and CEO. “We know these communities are resilient and hope that our contributions help accelerate relief efforts and the distribution of essential goods.”

International Paper employs nearly 5,000 team members throughout the two states.
