In the wake of the tornadoes and severe storms that struck the cities of Moore, Oklahoma City, and Norman, Okla., and the surrounding areas in May, Simpson Strong-Tie announced it will make a $25,000 donation to assist in the relief response and recovery efforts throughout the area.

The donation was given to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund and will aid in providing food, shelter, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by the tornadoes. The company will also match employees’ personal contributions to the Red Cross.

“We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to everyone who has been impacted by these disasters,” said Simpson Strong-Tie President Terry Kingsfather. “We hope that through the combined national support efforts, the affected areas in Oklahoma will be able to quickly recover and the communities are able to rebuild.”
