Headwear maker New Era's relief shipment for Alabama co-workers

Sep '05
Headwear maker New Era Cap Co Inc announced that its local employees have rallied in support of the company's Alabama-area employees affected by the devastating blow that Hurricane Katrina handed them.

In an effort to aid their Alabama co-workers, New Era's Buffalo-area employees are donating and collecting relief products for shipment to Alabama, where New Era has facilities in Demopolis, Jackson, and Mobile. The company has approximately 920 employees in Alabama.

"Company thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected by Hurricane Katrina," said New Era CEO Christopher H. Koch. "It is too early to truly know the full impact of this disaster to our country, or even our own employees and their families in that area, but they are greatly concerned about their well being and feel the urgency to support."

Tomorrow, Friday, September 2nd, at 2:00 p.m., a truck donated by TMSI, will be loaded up with collected non-perishables and toiletries will be driven to New Era's Jackson, Alabama facility, where the much needed items will be distributed to employees there and in Demopolis and Mobile, Alabama.

Appropriate donation items include bottled water and packaged beverages, powdered milk and baby formula, jarred baby food, non-perishable meats (pouched & canned tuna, ham and dried beef products), ready to eat foods (crackers and canned fruit), flash lights, batteries, paper products, pampers, disinfectant and baby wipes, hand sanitizers and other personal hygiene items.
