Standard Textile, a global leader in the healthcare and hospitality textiles industry, contributed critical items of need to Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma victims with separate donations to both the American Red Cross, Matthew 25: Ministries, and the Texas Diaper Bank. With its longstanding commitment to servicing the community at a grassroots level, Standard Textile has made significant donations to help shelters and individuals with a variety of products from sheets and towels to incontinence pads and diapers.

“When national disasters like Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma strike, it’s crucial to understand the urgency of need for basic necessities,” said Gary Heiman, president and CEO of Standard Textile. “At Standard Textile, we react preemptively, and we fulfill the needs of items that are often overlooked, like towels and incontinence products.”

Standard Textile had the opportunity to act proactively by helping the Red Cross prepare for disaster relief and coincidentally, supplied their depot in Texas with two container loads of towels at the beginning of August, just weeks before Harvey formed off the coast of Texas.
