- Tecton Products in western Roanoke County has a sister facility in Fargo, North Dakota, which, as you’ve seen in the news, has been battling floodwaters. It’s joined with two other companies in the Roanoke Valley that have ties to North Dakota to organize a flood relief drive this week, with donations being collected at the Bonsack Kroger.
Here’s the official message from Doug Chittum of Roanoke County’s economic development office:
Three Roanoke County businesses were recently impacted by the flooding in Fargo, North Dakota. Integrity Windows, Cardinal Glass and Tecton Products each have facilities in Fargo, and they (and their employees) have experienced significant losses due to the flooding. These companies are coming together to support their friends and family in Fargo by organizing a Flood Relief effort here in Roanoke, Va. The following is intended to make you aware of the donation items needed and to ask for your help in promoting this effort within your company. Your kindness and thoughtfulness is appreciated.
Donations accepted today through Friday, April 3.
Where: Bonsack Kroger
When: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day
* Cleaning supplies
