PPG Asia/Pacific is donating RMB 500,000 through the Red Cross Society of China to help purchase emergency equipment for the earthquake-ravaged Sichuan region. In addition, thousands of employees from PPG Asia/Pacific plants, trading companies, offices, labs and joint ventures are donating to a special account the company created to support earthquake relief.

The PPG Industries Foundation, based at the global headquarters in Pittsburgh, has pledged to match donations of $25 or more made by U.S. employees to the American Red Cross International Response Fund for earthquake disaster relief. Matching will apply to donations made within 90 days following the earthquake.

PPG also has launched a paint-sale donation program. For each can of Master’s Mark Paint, IVY paint and Seigneurie paint sold in May and June, the company will donate RMB 1 Yuan to aid in recovery efforts in the disaster area.
