Pleasanton, Calif. — On December 20, 2021, Super Typhoon Rai (known locally in the Philippines as Odette) became one of the strongest storms on record to hit the Philippine Islands. As of the first week of January 2022, nearly 7 million people were affected across the region. More than 400 deaths and 1,000 injuries have been reported. The UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has also estimated that 830,000 homes have been critically damaged.

The American Red Cross continues to coordinate with the Philippine Red Cross to determine the full scope of materials and assistance needed, including deploying trained specialists, mobilizing supplies, and providing financial support. Relief items such as blankets, tarpaulins, first aid kits and water containers have been provided to families in several badly hit areas.

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