Crane Donates to American Red Cross – Bluegrass Chapter in Kentucky

CHANNAHON, IL, April 1, 2021 –In late February and into early March, heavy snow and rain affected several counties in Kentucky. This led to major flooding and numerous mudslides that created a state of emergency in the state of Kentucky. Although Crane Composites’ facility in Florence, Kentucky has not been affected, the Bluegrass Area Chapter of the American Red Cross reported that more than 300 people stayed in emergency lodging and over 3,200 meals were served during this time while more than 700 homes suffered major damage or were destroyed.

Florence and the surrounding community as a whole mean a lot to the entire Crane family. As such, the Crane Fund has provided a generous donation to the American Red Cross in order to help support the community during its recovery. Thank you to the American Red Cross during this difficult time.
