Resolute is working with Florida Senator Rick Scott to send four truckloads of lumber and three truckloads of bath tissue and paper towels to Florida communities devastated by Hurricane Ian.
The lumber, which will be shipped from our Cross City (Florida) sawmill, can provide framing for ten single-family homes. Each truckload of tissue is stocked with products manufactured at our Hialeah (Florida) and Calhoun (Tennessee) tissue mills. The first truck left Calhoun on October 7, carrying 60 pallets (nearly 15,000 rolls) of paper towel. Operation Compassion and other relief and community organizations are receiving and distributing the donated items where they are most needed.
Resolute has three facilities in Florida, employing a total of 480 people. Our Cross City sawmill and Hialeah tissue mill were spared from the impact of the hurricane, while our Sanford tissue mill was shut down temporarily due to high winds and flooding.
Given our strong presence in the state, we believe we have an important role to play in assisting Florida families affected by the disaster. Resolute encourages other local manufacturers to join us in mobilizing quickly to support these communities. Our collective efforts can have a tremendous impact. We are grateful to Senator Rick Scott’s office for helping to coordinate the logistics.
