Symon Communications, a global provider of visual communications and digital signage solutions, announced today that the company has made a substantial contribution to the American Red Cross on Long Island to aid victims of Hurricane Sandy. A check was presented to Lauren McGowan, senior director of development for the Red Cross by Loretta Rederscheid of Symon.
Symon’s donation to the relief effort, in conjunction with other contributions, will enable the Red Cross to continue to offer emergency services. Red Cross volunteers have been helping residents by distributing relief supply bags. The bags include water, snacks and personal hygiene comfort kits, trash bags, blankets and items for infants including formula, diapers and cleaning supplies.
News reports show that the Red Cross has more than 5,800 disaster workers and hundreds of Red Cross vehicles have been mobilized to help. The Red Cross is helping residents who have lost their homes by providing more than 127,000 shelter stays. Parts of the area are still without heat or electrical power. Organizations including the Red Cross have already served millions of meals and handed out more than 1.7 million relief items, providing more than 57,000 health services and emotional support contacts.
