Fort Lauderdale power provider contributes to Hurricane Sandy fundraising

December 25, 2012 by  

Liberty Power, with its headquarters based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has made a donation to the American Red Cross to support Hurricane Sandy victims.

During November, a campaign was launched by the electricity supplier to raise funds towards helping people affected by the storm in October this year. The total amount raised by customers of Liberty Power reached $25,000 and was presented to the South Florida region of the American Red Cross.

The chief marketing officer for Liberty Power, Rana Ghosh, spoke of the devastation caused by the storm, not only to property and possessions but to the security and families affected. Ghosh credits customers with having the compassion to help those struggling in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The donation was actually presented to the American Red Cross on December 13 by Ghosh and will contribute towards everyday items that are essential to help people get back on their feet.

The chief development officer for the American Red Cross South Florida region, Michael Jalali, was extremely grateful for the donation, as this would contribute to the organization providing shelter, warm meals, and give back some hope to people affected. Over 20 states in the US were affected by the storm, which is on record as the largest Atlantic hurricane.

Local stationery printers may have been required to produce promotional flyers and other materials for the campaign. The American Red Cross may utilize the services of a local print company to recruit volunteers and donations to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
