Lifetime Makes $500K Donation to Aid Sandy Victims

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."

For those individuals who wish to participate in the Sandy relief collection with a monetary donation, checks can be made payable to Long Island Cares Inc. and mailed directly to Long Island Cares at: Long Island Cares Inc., 10 Davids Drive (Harry Chapin Way), Hauppauge, N.Y. 11788-2039. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact the volunteer coordinator, Alisha Summers at asummers@licares.org. Summers will provide availability and options for volunteering.
