MIDLAND, US: The Dow Chemical Company (DOW) and the Dow Chemical Company Foundation have announced the allocation of $1 million to support immediate relief and long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts associated with the Hurricane Harvey storm and its aftermath, as well as support for the company’s impacted employees.

As a part of this commitment, Dow is collaborating with national and local partners providing critical services to individuals immediately effected by the flood. To help meet this immediate need, Dow will donate $100,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, $100,000 to Team Rubicon, and $200,000 to other local nonprofit organizations assisting the region.

Dow is also matching employee and retiree donations up to $100,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.

As recovery and rebuilding efforts begin, Dow will continue to engage community partners to assess and respond to community needs not currently identified across the region through a financial commitment of $500,000, and in-kind and volunteer support.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire region, including our employees and the communities that we call home as the wrath of Hurricane Harvey is endured. Our primary concern right now is the safety of our employees and communities, and we’re working closely with our Dow families and local partners to help,” said Andrew Liveris, Dow’s chairman and CEO.
