HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Atlas Roofing Corp., through its parent company Hood Companies, will contribute $3 million to a hurricane relief fund established by best-selling author John Grisham.
Warren A. Hood Jr. and his wife, Carolyn, announced that Hood Companies will contribute $3 million to Grisham's Rebuild The Coast Fund.
"I would like to echo the sentiments expressed by Mr. Grisham in that we don't normally publicize our gifts," Hood said. "But, I hope this gift will inspire other Mississippi companies and individuals to contribute generously to the relief efforts. I believe that it is important that we help our fellow Mississippians who have been so tragically hurt by Hurricane Katrina."
