After the devastation Hurricane Sandy brought to the East Coast late last month, Loloi Rugs, a Dallas-based fine rugs company, announced that it is sending in some relief. Between Nov. 12–16, Loloi will donate a percentage of all of their sales to the American Red Cross to assist with the East Coast cleanup efforts.
“The East Coast was ripped apart by Hurricane Sandy," said Amir Loloi CEO. "And we want to help. By donating a percentage of our sales to the American Red Cross, we feel like we’re putting money in the hands of those best suited to help New York, New Jersey and the other affected areas recover and rebuild."
The American Red Cross works with government agencies, local emergency managers and community agencies to get a sense of where resources are most needed.
Within the first week of the American Red Cross’s Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, it had already distributed 481,000 meals and snacks and 33,000 relief items like hygiene kits to victims of the storm. All 323 of the agency’s emergency response vehicles had been deployed to the area, which was the first time in organization history this has happened. And as the temperatures in the Tristate area continue to plummet, the American Red Cross is distributing upwards of 80,000 blankets.
