Lifetime Makes $500K Donation to Aid Sandy Victims
November 28, 2012,
GARDEN CITY, N.Y.-Long Island-based Lifetime Brands has donated housewares products valued at more than $500,000--including cookware, kitchen tools, dinnerware, flatware and cutlery--to Long Island Cares to provide support for Long Islanders affected by superstorm Sandy. In addition, Lifetime has conducted an office-wide Sandy relief collection which generated an extensive amount of food, clothing and supplies that will also help to support the Long Island Cares Sandy relief efforts.
"Superstorm Sandy has directly impacted our families, friends, neighbors and employees," said Jeffrey Siegel, chairman and president. "Having seen and experienced the devastation caused by Sandy first-hand, our hearts go out to everyone who has been affected, especially in the communities that are still experiencing hardships today. We hope that our donation will help organizations who are providing meals for others, and those individuals in need of replacing kitchen items lost in the storm."
