PORT ANGELES, WASHINGTON -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Interfor (TSX: IFP.A) will donate lumber to remodel an historic Port Angeles inn so it can become a peaceful retreat for military families from across the United States who have lost a loved one in action since 9/11.
Betsy Reed Schultz, who ran the award-winning inn for 10 years, created the non-profit Captain Joseph House Foundation to honor her son Joseph, a Special Forces Green Beret who died in Afghanistan in May 2011. Captain Joseph House is being renovated and modernized so up to three Gold Star families can share one-week retreats. Gold Star families are those who have lost an immediate family member in war.
"Interfor is deeply honored to help Betsy Reed Schultz realize her dream of providing a haven for families who have paid the highest price to keep our country safe," says Steve Kroll, General Manager Washington Operations.
"The donation of lumber from Interfor's Port Angeles and Beaver mills will support the renovation of Captain Joseph House and provide a place where families from across America can connect and draw strength from their common experience of loss," says Betsy Reed Schultz.
Captain Joseph House also offers a modest scholarship program to help children of fallen soldiers with post-high school educational expenses.
Interfor is a growth-oriented lumber company with operations in Canada and the United States. The Company has annual production capacity of 2.6 billion board feet and offers one of the most diverse lines of lumber products to customers around the world.
