Palmdale, CA (PRWEB) May 20, 2010
2010 has turned out to be a year of many natural disasters. Emergency supplies and tarps are always an essential item during these occasions. The compound of a sagging economy and this year’s extreme weather has challenged many home owners as well as the homeless. 2010 has seen it’s share of earthquakes, floods and tornados, wreaking havoc on the people of those regions. Towns like Norman, Oklahoma and counties like Cook County in Illinois were also heavily hit with storms this year. Storms, tornados and hurricanes rip the roofs off house and in many cases totally destroy the house. Due to the poor economy, many people could not afford the type insurance they needed to protect their home, which has left many people homeless.
A leading tarp distributor, Tarps Plus is planning an annual “tarps give-way” to many of these stricken areas across the country as well as areas with high homeless rates. Tarps Plus currently gives tarps away annually to the homeless in Los Angeles where the company is based but now seeks to spread out the annual give-away to several other locations that are stricken with extreme weather and higher homeless rates. The homeless are the most venerable to cold climates and harsh weather conditions. In cities like New Orleans where the homeless rate has jumped to one in twenty five people, nearly five years after Hurricane Katrina, the challenges are abundant. In cities like Chicago where record temperatures were recorded, homeless flow out into the streets due to full homeless shelters.
Michael Stein, the founder and CEO of Tarps Plus says, “a tarps might not be much but it will protect someone from rain and help to keep them warm.” The tarp giveaway will be called, “Tarps Plus Love” and will take place during Thanksgiving.
Tarps Plus will be giving out over a thousand tarps in each city. The company is also seeking other companies with helpful products to join them in this effort.
