Loloi Rugs to Help with Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

DALLAS--Loloi Rugs has pledged a percentage of its sales for this week, Nov. 12-16, to be donated to the American Red Cross to assist with the East Coast cleanup efforts.

"The East Coast was ripped apart by Hurricane Sandy," said Amir Loloi, CEO, Loloi. "And we want to help. By donating a percentage of our sales to the American Red Cross, we feel like we're putting money in the hands of those best suited to help New York, New Jersey and the other affected areas recover and rebuild."

The American Red Cross had distributed 481,000 meals and snacks and 33,000 relief items such as hygiene kits to victims of the storm within the first week of the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, Loloi Rugs said in a statement. It added that all 323 of the agency's emergency response vehicles had been deployed to the affected area, the first time in organization history this has happened.
