WESTMINSTER, Colo., Jan. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ball Corporation (NYSE: BLL) today announced that The Ball Foundation will donate $1 million and deploy other disaster relief efforts to support communities in Colorado devastated by the recent wildfires.

This is our community and we're committed to helping with recovery and rebuilding efforts both financially and by mobilizing our employee base through volunteer recovery efforts."
