Protective Packaging Donates MIL-DTL-117 Bags to Hurricane Relief
DALLAS, TX (September 2017)  – Protective Packaging Corporation is donating 15,000 moisture barrier bags to the Salvation Army for use in hurricane relief efforts throughout the Gulf Coast, Florida and the southeast.

These bags are military-grade, moisture barrier bags designed to protect contents from harsh conditions, including being submerged in water.  Certified to MIL-DTL-117 specifications, these bags provide critical protection for contents during shipping and storage.  This is the same material used by the US military to package military rations as meals ready to eat (MREs). Packaging food, clothing, medical supplies or equipment in these bags can extend the usable life of items, ensuring they don’t go to waste during indefinite recovery operations.

“As news pours in about the extent of damage and devastation caused by the hurricanes, our thoughts and prayers go out to residents affected,” Protective Packaging Corporation Chief Executive Officer, Steve Hanna, said. “We hope our contribution will provide some assistance during the long recovery process.”

All donated bags will be transported from Protective Packaging’s headquarters in Carrollton, Texas to the Dallas Area Salvation Army for distribution to appropriate relief operations in the paths of hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Protective Packaging Corporation is proud to support the Salvation Army which has mobilized its resources to distribute items to those residents hardest hit by the storm.
