Blain Supply announced that distribution center associates raised $2,800 for hurricane relief efforts led by the American Red Cross.

The company held an internal fundraiser Sept. 29. That effort came about after the Blain Supply Recognition Committee spearheaded a successful donation drive for Hurricane Harvey victims with Hufcor and the JJ Watt Foundation at Blain’s Farm and Fleet on Sept. 1.

The committee of Kevin Francis, Kimberly Corcoran, Bud Maurizzi and Jill Purdy planned the internal fundraiser and solicited ideas from others to make the event a success. does not condone or review every comment. Read more in our Commenter Policy Agreement
