DAVIDSON, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– In support of those affected by the crisis in Ukraine, Ingersoll Rand Inc. (NYSE: IR) has partnered with World Food Program USA (WFP USA) to provide food assistance in Ukraine.

The financial assistance provided by Ingersoll Rand and its employees will help U.N. World Food Programme give direct assistance to people in Ukraine, and those fleeing to surrounding countries.

And today, our 16,000 global employees are rallying together to provide food assistance for people fleeing the conflict within Ukraine as well as those staying in Ukraine. We are proud to stand with the people of Ukraine and applaud the many amazing acts that our employees have already taken including housing Ukrainian refugees and teaching language skills to help them navigate their new circumstances. We know our contributions and our employee’s efforts will help the people of Ukraine during this humanitarian crisis.”
