The funds will be transferred to GHSP’s Japan Sales Office, which was not affected by the last month’s disaster. GHSP employees in Japan will work directly with the people of Utsunomiya to put the contributions to work where they are needed most, company officials said.

GHSP will also be collecting blankets, sleeping bags and AA battery-powered LED flashlights at both the Grand Haven and Hart plants. These items will be donated to International Aid, which will get them to Japan. The public is welcome to donate any of these items at GHSP’s Grand Haven headquarters, 1250 S. Beechtree St., through April 15.
