We hope that our coolers will help to ease the stress on providing safe food and cool beverages to both survivors and aid responders.
Katy, TX (PRWEB) May 24, 2013
Following what has been called one of the worst tornado disasters in recent memory, Igloo Products Corp. has added to the outpouring of help by delivering a truckload of almost 800 coolers to the Moore First Baptist Church disaster relief effort. The truck is on its way from Texas to a storage facility in neighboring Norman, Oklahoma and should arrive on Saturday, May 25th.
According to Igloo CEO, Gary Kiedaisch, disasters like these create a wide range of needs, but few are so vital as keeping food and drink fresh and safe for consumption. “The storms that devastated Oklahoma on May 20th are a major disaster. We hope that our coolers will help to ease the stress on providing safe food and cool beverages to both survivors and aid responders,” he said. “We’re happy to join the rest of the country in helping Oklahoma residents face this challenge and move on with life.”
The Igloo coolers will provide a temperature stable storage environment for food and drink for victims and crews working on the cleanup of the area said Moore Fist Baptist Church representative, Debbie Troxell. “The coolers will be used in multiple ways, but they will predominantly go to the volunteer crews removing debris throughout the summer. Between 1,200 and 1,300 homes were destroyed in this storm, and we will be coordinating with other area churches to facilitate the cleanup efforts,” Troxell explained. “We are very thankful to Igloo for their generous donation. We know the coolers will be put to good use.”
