Coville Invites Industry Support for Alamac Victims of Hurricane Matthew
December 20th, 2016
Coville Inc. is rallying industry friends and colleagues to join them in donating to assist in the recovery of Hurricane Matthew victims at Alamac American Knits.
WINSTON-SALEM, NC – DECEMBER 20, 2016 – In lieu of its traditional annual gifts to customers and suppliers, Coville Inc. has donated $10,000 to assist in the recovery of Hurricane Matthew victims at Alamac American Knits. While the Alamac plant in Lumberton, North Carolina was not damaged, the families of 10 employees lost everything in the surrounding floods.
“Many of our textile industry friends and colleagues were among those affected by Hurricane Matthew,” explained Coville President Don Trexler. “During this holiday season, our thoughts and prayers are with those families that were displaced by the extraordinary flooding. We invite all textile and sewn products companies and professionals to join us in donating to honor Alamac and their families.”
All donations can be made through the GoFundMe account “Alamac Cares”, which was established by Jay Humphrey on behalf of Robert S. Hester with the goal of raising $100,000 to assist in the recovery. According to the fund page (https://www.gofundme.com/alamac-cares-flood-relief-fund-2vr5pqk4), 100% of donations received will be distributed to the Alamac employees and their families who have been displaced by the storm.
