American Red Cross Month gets local company’s support
March 9, 2013 by Mark
American Red Cross Month is being supported by LensDirect.com, an online retailer for contact lenses. The company is partnering with the American Red Cross throughout March, donating a percentage from each of its sales to the organization.
As many of the employees of the company, which is based in Valley Stream, were hugely affected by Hurricane Sandy in October last year, the company is keen to support the Red Cross.
The American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund enables the organization to be one of the main organizations to help people affected by disasters, both large and small. The CEO of LensDirect.com, Ryan Alovis, spoke of his pride at being able to partner with the Red Cross throughout March – a month dedicated to the organization since 1943 and by every president of the U.S. The American Red Cross Month will possibly be promoted using local flyer printing services, encouraging more people to donate or volunteer their time.
Relief operations have been launched in 10 states by the American Red Cross to help people who were affected by Hurricane Sandy. The organization has provided overnight shelter, food, emergency response vehicles, health services, and emotional support for people during the crisis. Alovis added that the company looked forward to a future partnership with the American Red Cross, in addition to supporting the dedicated month of March. The organization provides essential relief for those affected by disasters, while also launching programs to support people in need.
