DEARBORN, Mich. - Carhartt, America‘s premium work wear brand since 1889, donated more than 1,200 pieces of apparel, an estimated retail value of $110,000, to the Salvation Army in Memphis for local flood victims. The donation includes jeans, canvas pants, tee-shirts, woven shirts and outerwear for both men and women.

"The recent flooding disaster in the Memphis area is absolutely devastating," said Tim Humes, Carhartt‘s brand marketing manager, PR. "Though we have no control over these types of tragedies, we can control our reaction. Our hearts go out to those affected by the flooding and we hope this donation will be a positive step in the recovery process."
