Powerhouse makes a donation to Red Cross Personnel

We appreciate Powerhouse stepping forward in response to support the American Red Cross Superstorm Sandy Relief Efforts.

Hurricane Sandy caused unprecedented damage to the New York and New Jersey area. Powerhouse responded to countless emergencies by providing portable boiler rooms and emergency service technicians to the affected areas before, during, and after the storm. With the additional business gained, Powerhouse Boiler Equipment was able to donate to the one organization that helps more directly-affected-individuals than any other, the American Red Cross.

"The American Red Cross relies on donors and volunteers to help carry out our humanitarian mission. We appreciate Powerhouse stepping forward as partners in disaster response to provide boilers to buildings in the disaster area, as well as give a generous $25,000 donation to support the American Red Cross Superstorm Sandy & Nor'easter response, relief and recovery services,” stated Joseph G Blazejewski, Major Gift Officer for the American Red Cross.

The Red Cross estimates it will take approximately three years for complete recovery to occur for all those affected from Hurricane Sandy. “The Red Cross is helping thousands cope with the devastation caused by this storm and Powerhouse is satisfied we can help in any way,” stated Matthew Stohner, VP at Powerhouse Boiler Equipment. “We thank the Red Cross for all they do and encourage everyone to make a donation,” The Red Cross has utilized the services of over 90,000 volunteers to help restore the communities. More than a month after Sandy made landfall, the New York State Emergency Operations Center is still in a Full Activation mode (Level II), and 35 Disaster Recovery Centers are open.

Please donate to the Red Cross. Any amount helps!
