OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 12, 2013 /3BL Media/ – The Clorox Company (NYSE: CLX) has donated $150,000 to the American Red Cross Pacific Typhoon Fund to aid in recovery following the devastation of Typhoon Hainan in the Philippines. The company has also established a microsite through the American Red Cross that enables employees and others to donate to relief efforts.

Clorox’s business in the Philippines has provided relief goods to feed the 100 families of its impacted distributors, who are in an area with little news coverage or aid. Local Clorox employees have also signed up to pack relief goods with the Department of Social Welfare.

Clorox is donating its current local product inventory, which will be distributed this week, and working to import a container of Clorox® bleach that will be delivered directly to the Red Cross. 

Additionally, the company is working with an ad agency partner to spread the word on proper disinfecting techniques. The World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend the use of bleach for helping control the spread of pathogens that can cause infections and other health threats.
