Sometimes unfortunate events occur that are beyond our control.
WestRock has a long history of responding to disasters around the world through international relief organizations such as the Red Cross and Red Crescent societies. The global impact of these assistance programs is undeniable; however, when disaster strikes close to home, WestRock team members like to know their co-workers are taken care of and are willing to pitch in to help them get back on their feet. That’s why we established the WestRock Employee Relief Fund.
Since the Fund was established in 2005, more than $2.8 million has been provided to WestRock team members impacted by a natural or man-made disaster, such as a home fire, tornado, hurricane, flood or tsunami. Thanks to the generous support from WestRock employees and other donors, the Employee Relief Fund is available to help our team members when an unexpected disaster strikes.
The Employee Relief Fund is primarily funded by contributions from WestRock employees located around the world. Team members in the U.S. are eligible to donate via payroll deduction – click below to sign up.
Employees in the U.S. may also donate by check, mailed to:
