Twin-Star Donates Space Heaters to Aid Hurricane Sandy Victims

DELRAY BEACH, Fla.-Twin-Star International has donated a truckload of space heaters to two relief groups providing help to New York and New Jersey residents whose homes were damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.

Twin-Star gave 26,400 Duraflame space heaters to the Salvation Army, which has a major presence in New York and New Jersey. Thousands of heaters were distributed in Rockaway, Queens, where many families had been without heat since the hurricane.

Also, Twin-Star donated 5,000 Duraflame space heaters to Island Harvest, one of Long Island's largest hunger relief organizations. Island Harvest is distributing the space heaters to shelters and individuals most left in need within the storm-damaged metropolitan and oceanfront areas.

"Thousands of New York and New Jersey residents are struggling to stay warm as a result of damage inflicted by this devastating storm," said Robert Cohen, CEO of Twin-Star. "Flooding has impacted residents' ability to heat their homes and, in many cases, they have been forced to remain in shelters until power is restored."
