DuPont announced a $100,000 donation to support the Midland, MI community in its relief and recovery efforts associated with the recent historic flooding.
“For our employees, their families and our community, we begin the reality of damage assessment, clean-up efforts and the journey to recovering. Our ability to adapt to these situations is rooted in our core values and we will work with our employees, neighbors, community partners and local officials to help us all rebuild and emerge stronger together,” said Tim Lacey, VP and GM, Performance Buildings and Corian Design.
The Midland Area Community Foundation has established the Midland Flood Relief Fund to provide for long-term disaster relief in Midland County.
