Twin-Star Donates Space Heaters to Aid Hurricane Sandy Victims
November 28, 2012,
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.
"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."
