iLevel by Weyerhaeuser is donating OSB sheathing and a truckload of 2×4 lumber to help rebuild homes and other buildings damaged by a massive tornado in Joplin, Missouri.

The tornado on May 21 cut a swathe of destruction through Joplin, killing more than 150 people.

“A few days after any tragedy like this, the news crews leave and people outside the area return to their lives, but the hard work of rebuilding continues much longer,said Stewart Lavigne, manager, OSB marketing and sales for iLevel by Weyerhaeuser.

The donation is being co-ordinated through iLevel dealer Forest Products Supply Co in St Louis and in conjunction with the Mid-America Lumbermens Association (MLA).
