HOUSTON, US: Kraton Corporation (KRA) announced a donation of $25,000 to the American Red Cross in response to communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Employee donations to qualified Hurricane Harvey relief charities will also be matched – up to $25,000 – with a company contribution to the American Red Cross.

Kraton has approximately 2,000 employees worldwide, with about 138 personnel based in Houston. All employees in the Houston area have been accounted for, but unfortunately, some have taken in water, lost their cars and/or had to evacuate their homes. To help those employees during this difficult time, Kraton will provide financial assistance to those employees who were personally and directly impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this unprecedented disaster, including our employees, partners and community members. The American Red Cross is instrumental in providing relief for many residents of Houston and surrounding areas, and we are committed to providing any support we can as all of us work together to recover from this storm," said Kevin Fogarty, Kraton's president and CEO.
