Ingram Supports States Impacted by Hurricane Florence

20-Sep-2018

NASHVILLE, TENN. September 20, 2018 – As many Atlantic seaboard cities begin to recover from Hurricane Florence, Ingram Content Group (“Ingram”) is committed to helping booksellers and libraries in the impacted areas.

To address immediate needs, Ingram is aiding booksellers and libraries through donations to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (BINC) and the American Library Association’s (ALA) relief efforts.  In addition, Ingram’s retail division will be postponing invoices for their clients. Independent bookstores and Christian retail stores impacted by Florence may contact their Ingram rep to learn more about the invoice assistance.

“As the catastrophic effects continue, we know it will take time for communities to rebuild physically, emotionally and, of course, financially,” said Shawn Morin, CEO, Ingram Content Group. “Florence has impacted many states, and we are continuing to look for ways to help the booksellers and libraries”

Any bookseller in need of help should reach out to help@bincfoundation.org, and anyone wanting to help a bookseller recover from disaster can donate to Binc https://secure.donationpay.org/bincfoundation.

The ALA and its chapters in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia are working to assist libraries along the Atlantic seaboard. To donate, visit ala.org/donate
