Pleasanton, California – On December 20, 2021, Super Typhoon Rai (known locally in the Philippines as Odette) became one of the most severe storms on record over the Philippine Islands. By the first week of January, nearly 7 million people were affected in the region. More than 400 dead and 1,000 injured have been reported. The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs also estimated that 830,000 homes were severely damaged.

The American Red Cross continues to coordinate with the Philippine Red Cross to determine all necessary equipment and assistance, including deploying trained specialists, mobilizing supplies and providing financial support. Relief items such as blankets, tarpaulins, first aid kits and water containers were provided to families in several hard-hit areas.

To help with these efforts, Simpson Strong-Tie donated $ 25,000 to the Red Cross for the relief and recovery of Super Typhoon Rai.
