Ferguson supports communities with the products you need to recover and rebuild after an emergency, such as power tools, cleaning supplies, and trash cans and bags.

"Initially we support communities by supplying items such as generators and drinking water to help communities get back on their feet. Through our vast distribution network and wide product range, we work to help with the rebuild process... If we can get products in customers’ hands when they need them, then we’ve done our job by connecting our resources to the people who need them most."
