Resolute donates four truckloads of lumber through the American Red Cross to support Florida hurricane relief; company aims to support rebuilding efforts in proximity to its Cross City, Florida, sawmill

Sample article from our Wood & Building Products

November 1, 2023 (press release) –

Hurricane Idalia, a category-4 hurricane that hit land in northern Florida on August 30, 2023, caused significant damage across the southeastern United States. Resolute was quick to respond, working with local partners and Florida Senator Rick Scott to support rebuilding efforts in proximity to our Cross City (Florida) sawmill, one of the area’s largest employers.

We donated four truckloads of lumber through the American Red Cross to help restore family homes and community infrastructure damaged or destroyed by the devastating storm.

The lumber was shipped from Cross City to Steinhatchee, to the site of Steinhatchee Fish Company, shut down in the aftermath of the hurricane. Owners Janalea and Garrett England were expecting four small bundles of wood… only to receive four truckloads of lumber! They mobilized other local business owners for logistical assistance and to identify families from nearby communities whose homes were destroyed or sustained significant damage.

Many others helped coordinate the donation. In addition to Senator Scott and his team, who were instrumental in bringing the various stakeholders together, Cross City Sawmill Manager Chuck Morgan and Resolute’s wood products sales team played a vital role in ensuring the timely delivery of the lumber.

With three facilities and 485 employees in the state, Resolute is proud to support our Florida operating communities.
