MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. — Honeywell announced that it has donated around $2 million worth of personal protective equipment to the responders aiding in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
The safety product company said it donated almost 100,000 pieces of PPE to first responders, including safety clothing, protective footwear, rubber boots, gloves, masks, eyewear, hard hats and hearing protection.
“This past week has been an impossibly difficult one for many Texans as Hurricane Harvey caused mass devastation in Texas and along the U.S. Gulf Coast. Our thoughts are with the many thousands of families whose lives have been disrupted,” Honeywell president and CEO Darius Adamczyk said. “In addition to supporting first responders, Honeywell will provide employees in the area with protective safety gear to support their personal needs along with emergency financial support through our humanitarian relief program.”
In the past 10 years, Honeywell has donated over $9.8 million in disaster relief support.
“Under these extraordinary circumstances, we want to help volunteers, employees and our customers to be as safe as possible,” Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions John Waldron said. “We are proud of the great work being done by first responders and so many others, and we are thankful for the ability to help those on the front lines who provide help where it is needed the most.”
