Culp sends 6.5+ tons of donated goods to Haiti
Posted September 23, 2021
HIGH POINT, N.C. – Over 6.5 tons of donations are en route to Culp, Inc.’s production facilities in Ouanaminthe, Haiti, for distribution to earthquake victims in affected areas of the country.
CULP led a community-wide “Hands in for Haiti” donation drive, which began immediately after the August 14th earthquake. Culp’s facilities are not located near the epicenter of the quake, and the company did not sustain any damage or harm to its facilities or employees. However, many CULP employees have family members who have been affected by the disaster.
Knowing that some of the extended Culp family needed help, and with the logistical capability to get supplies to Haiti, the company quickly reacted. With the hopes of making a sizeable impact, Culp expanded its reach beyond its employees and opened up the donation drive to the community. The amount of donations received was nothing short of amazing.
“Our company is grateful to be a part of the caring community of High Point,” said Iv Culp, president and CEO of Culp, Inc. “The combined efforts of our Culp employees, the community, and the industry have been remarkable. We want to thank everyone who played a part in this magnificent effort of generosity.”
