SCA tornado relief efforts impacted by employees

July 13, 2011

PHILADELPHIA — SCA is continuing its ardent support of tornado relief efforts in the Southeast U.S. with employee-matched cash donations and hygiene products to the American Red Cross and Feeding America totaling more than $125,000, according to a press release.

After an initial donation of $25,000 to the American Red Cross in the days directly following the April catastrophe, SCA matched all employee donations dollar-for-dollar, the release stated.

According to the release, even after this immediate call to action, SCA employees from across the U.S. continued to send contributions.

"Our employees expressed interest in providing support for those who were affected, and our matching gift program helped to address that desire," said Don Lewis, president of SCA Tissue North America.

"It’s also meaningful to put our Tork products to work to support the disaster relief,” Lewis added.
