The company facilitated donations through Convoy of Hope, a non-profit charity leading recovery efforts and providing relief to Hurricane Florence victims. The organisation was one of the first to mobilise in the region and start providing assistance.

Convoy of Hope teams on the ground have been distributing relief supplies to storm survivors, coordinating volunteers and assisting in clean-up efforts. Rockline’s contribution included a variety of wet wipes such as facial and body care wipes, disposable baby wipes and household cleaning wipes. As people face a long recovery ahead after tremendous flooding, household cleaning wipes are in especially high demand and can be useful in the clean-up process.

“On behalf of all Rockline employees, our hearts go out to the millions of Americans impacted by Hurricane Florence,” said company president Randy Rudolph. “With such devastating damage and continued threats from flooding, we hope to offer our resources and support to those in need.”

Rockline Industries was founded in 1976 and is headquartered in Sheboygan, WI. It is one of the largest manufacturers of coffee filters and consumer, health care, industrial and institutional wet wipes. A family-owned company, Rockline employs nearly 2,500 people worldwide and has manufacturing facilities in Wisconsin, Arkansas, New Jersey, Tennessee, England and South China.
