"We are grateful to the The Libman Company for their generous donation of quality cleaning tools to help those affected by Hurricane Matthew. Lyn Hruska, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross Serving Central and Southern Illinois
Arcola, Ill. (PRWEB) October 17, 2016
The Libman Company has donated more 6,000 household and commercial cleaning products to victims affected by the devastation left from Hurricane Matthew. Libman is working with the American Red Cross to get its products into the hands of homeowners so that they can begin the arduous cleanup process.
U.S. officials are reporting damage of at least $6 billion, making Matthew the costliest hurricane since Sandy in 2012. States affected by Matthew are North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.
The American Red Cross has mounted a massive sheltering operation across the East Coast to help individuals and families impacted by Hurricane Matthew. In total, the Red Cross has mobilized more than 4,100 disaster workers, 200 response vehicles—more than half of its total vehicle fleet—and more than 100 trailers filled with water, ready-to-eat meals, cots, blankets, kitchen items, cleaning supplies, comfort kits, insect repellant, gloves, masks, shovels, rakes, coolers and more.
“We want to help homeowners affected by Matthew by providing them with the supplies they need as they begin the damage assessment and clean-up process,” said Andrew Libman, president of The Libman Company. “The Red Cross’ quick response and mobilization process, combined with its mass logistics network, enables us to quickly get supplies into the hands of those that need them,” he said.
"We are grateful to the The Libman Company for their generous donation of quality cleaning tools to help those affected by Hurricane Matthew,” said Lyn Hruska, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross Serving Central and Southern Illinois. “The Red Cross relies on the support of caring partners, such as The Libman Company, and we look forward to working with them in the future.”
