When disasters strike, we roll up our sleeves to help.
Man-made and natural disasters can be devastating to our
employees, neighbors and customers. Victims immediately need access
to safe shelter, food, clothing and financial assistance to start
rebuilding their lives. We feel the best way to help those affected
by disasters as quickly as possible is by partnering with relief
organizations that have the expertise, staff, volunteers and
material resources ready to respond. In addition, Kimberly-Clark
generally makes product contributions and works with a variety of
international humanitarian aid groups to ensure help makes it to
those in need.
In 2011, Kimberly-Clark renewed our commitment to the American
Red Cross Annual Disaster
Giving Program with a pledge of $1.5 million over three years
to support local, national and international disaster preparedness
and response programs. As a member of the ADGP, Kimberly-Clark's
support ensures that the Red Cross can be on the scene of a
disaster at a moment's notice.
