WICHITA, KS — In the wake of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Koch Industries Inc. has announced it will donate $1 million for disaster relief efforts, according to a press release.

The company will be giving $500,000 each to the American Red Cross and The Salvation Army, the release noted.

"Our hearts go out to the people of Japan as they deal with overwhelming and unfolding challenges," said Dave Robertson, president and chief operating officer (COO) of Koch Industries.

"Although our presence there is small with only 75 employees, this is an important humanitarian effort. We hope these funds will help the Japanese people as they set out on the path to recovery," Robertson added.

In addition to the $1 million donation, Koch Industries subsidiary Georgia-Pacific LLC is also contributing to the ongoing relief effort through organizations like Convoy of Hope and Feed The Children, the release stated.
