SEVEN THOUSAND GALLONS OF GLIDDEN PAINT TO AID MIDWEST RECOVERY

 CLEVELAND, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- More relief supplies head to three cities in the flood-damaged Midwest from The Glidden Company's major paint manufacturing site on Sprowl Road in Huron, Ohio. Two truckloads with a total of 7,000 gallons of Glidden interior and exterior paint and 3,000 roller covers donated by The Wooster (Ohio) Brush Company are en route for distribution through Salvation Army units in St. Louis and Des Moines, Iowa, and via FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) in Rock Island, Ill. The Rock Island shipment will go to the Bettendorf, Iowa, community, which is close to recovery.
 Jim Ardelean, Glidden Midwest regional sales manager, said, "We believe the paint will arrive at a time when people will be ready for it. Reports indicate that flood waters have receded in most parts of Des Moines and St. Louis."
 Glidden paint and Wooster covers will be loaded and shipped on Friday, Aug. 27, for delivery on Monday, Aug. 30.
