HURRICANE SANDY: AFTER THE STORM

Rebuilding after Sandy
Since Hurricane Sandy first hit land on October 29, Fashion Delivers has been working with industry donors, securing new product to help people rebuild their lives after the storm. Apparel and home goods companies have generously donated approximately $20 million of merchandise, and we have been working with local relief agencies to get these donations to people in need. As the recovery progresses and needs change we are continuing to help Sandy victims.
Monetary support has also been a big help; the Polo Ralph Lauren Foundation provided us with a cash grant of $25,000 to support our efforts. Additionally the Lifemax Foundation has provided $10,000 and the Robin Hood Foundation has given us $25,000 to support our Sandy relief work. Click here to see Lifemax's big check presentation. Their $10,000 grant will be used to purchase needed items not otherwise donated. The support from the Robin Hood Foundation will help us distribute a minimum of $625,000 worth of donated merchandise specifically to New Jersey shore communities.

In addition to shipping new product donations to our community agency partners, we have also participated in these distribution activities:

We are very grateful to our product and cash donors for making this essential assistance to Sandy victims possible. Following these initial efforts, we expect the needs of the Sandy victims to change as we move into the spring season, but apparel and home furnishings will still be in demand. We will need the help of companies and individuals to support the victims of Sandy as they work to return to a normal life.
