TAMKO Building Products, Inc. has again donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross. This time, the funds are designated for assistance with Hurricane Maria disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

 “The magnitude of destruction left behind from recent hurricanes is unsettling,” said TAMKO’s President and CEO David Humphreys. “TAMKO is dedicated to helping others, and we know that through the Red Cross we can do just that, particularly when those needs are so urgent.”

TAMKO donates annually to the Red Cross, and in recent years has given extra monetary gifts to assist with disaster recovery from tornadoes that ravaged towns where TAMKO has operations, including Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Joplin, Missouri, which were both struck by devastating tornados in 2011. TAMKO’s most recent donation to the Red Cross was presented in September to assist with Hurricane Harvey disaster relief efforts in Houston.
