Dow AgroSciences LLC is donating $25,000 to flood relief efforts in its home state.
The donation from the Indiapolis-based company — through The Dow Chemical Company Foundation — is in response to the flooding disasters taking place across Indiana. The money will be given to the American Red Cross of Greater Indianapolis to help victims from flooding that has caused 29 Indiana counties to be declared federal disaster areas.
“The flooding of communities in our home state is tragic on many levels as citizens have lost homes, businesses their assets, and farmers their crops. We are proud to call Indiana home, and want to help in times of need such as this,” says Jerome Peribere, president and CEO of Dow AgroSciences. “Partnering with our communities is a tradition at Dow AgroSciences and our thoughts are with those impacted by the flooding.”
