Supporting Communities Impacted by Disasters

In 2018, several H.B. Fuller communities were impacted by severe natural disasters. In support of our mission to strengthen the communities where we do business, the H.B. Fuller Company Foundation contributed relief funding.

During July and August, several earthquakes struck the Indonesian island of Lombok, killing hundreds and devastating local infrastructure. In August, a monsoon caused intense flooding in Kerala, India, leading to hundreds of deaths, forcing over a million people to evacuate, and destroying much of the local infrastructure. In September, Typhoon Jebi made landfall over Japan, resulting in several deaths, hundreds of injuries, and significant damage, including at the local airport. Also in September, Hurricane Florence made landfall on the east coast of the United States, leading to several deaths, injuries, and severe impacts across the region. In November, wildfires spread across California, causing many fatalities, destroying thousands of homes, and forcing widespread evacuations.

In partnership with GlobalGiving, the H.B. Fuller Company Foundation matched all employee donations dollar-for-dollar. We are proud to have once again come together with our employees to help respond to disasters around the world in 2018.
