W.W. Grainger Inc., a leading North American distributor of facilities maintenance supplies, contributed $15,000 to the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (LABI)/Baton Rouge Area Foundation Small Business Disaster Relief Fund in June to help small businesses in New Orleans rebuild after Hurricane Katrina. This contribution comes nearly a month after Grainger reopened its branch in downtown New Orleans, located at 601 S. Galvez St., three blocks from the Superdome.

Grainger was one of the first companies to reopen in New Orleans after last year's devastating storm. "Our employees take great pride in helping businesses maintain their facilities every day by providing essential supplies and materials,"
