Pleasanton, Calif. – Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to assist with relief efforts for communities affected by the wildfires in Northern and Southern California.
Both ends of the state have experienced massive devastation from the blazes. The Camp Fire that began in Butte County has claimed the lives of at least 63 people, with more than 600 individuals still reported as missing. The Woolsey Fire in Ventura County has caused three deaths, and more than 9,000 homes and other structures have been destroyed.
“Along with so many others, employees at our headquarters in Northern California and at our Riverside manufacturing facility in Southern California have been directly affected by the fires,” said Simpson Strong-Tie Chief Operating Officer Ricardo Arevalo. “Our thoughts go out to everyone as the work to contain these blazes continues.”
