Wind-lock donates supplies to Hurricane Katrina relief effort
"When we heard that a local church near our office was trying to round up new building supplies for the Hurricane Katrina relief effort, we wanted to help," said Carter Benjamin, director of marketing and product development for Wind-lock. "We believe that we can give hope to the people of Alabama, Mississippi and the Louisiana Gulf Coast by giving them the tools and materials they need to rebuild."
The 144,000 screws that Wind-Lock donated to the Lutheran Church of the Holy Trinity in Leesport, Pa., was delivered, along with other building materials donated by area residents and businesses, to the Gulf Coast on a 60-foot trailer October 14.
"We hope that this gesture will encourage other business and the building industry as a whole to make donations to the Hurricane Katrina Relief effort too," said Benjamin.
