Update: Hurricane Sandy Relief

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our Hurricane Sandy Charity Drive!

The response was overwhelming, and Allied employees, their friends and families, and even Allied customers donated six pallets (more than 80 large boxes) worth of clothing, food, and supplies to FDNY Battalion 47 in Rockaway, NY. Our friends at Comstar alone delivered a cargo van filled floor-to-ceiling with donations! We also shipped out the SOW cable donated by Allied Wire & Cable to connect their generators.

We began collecting for Battalion 47 when we received an email from Gary O’Hal, an FDNY firefighter from Rockaway, NY. His area was one of those hardest hit by Superstorm Sandy and hundreds of firefighters’ families lost their homes to fires and flooding. Although many of these families lost everything, as first responders, the firefighters were out helping others impacted by the storm, even before their own families and few remaining belongings were secure. We wanted to give back to these heroes who always put others before themselves, and thanks to the contributions from so many, we were able to do just that.

If you would like to help, there is still time. Battalion 47 is collecting monetary donations at http://www.gofundme.com/FDNYFirefightersFamilies. All of the donations go directly to relief efforts for the FDNY firefighters and their families.

To help other Hurricane Sandy victims, Allied Wire & Cable also donated $5,000 to charitable organizations throughout New York and New Jersey:

From the entire Allied Wire & Cable family, a huge “thank you” to everyone who showed such generosity to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. We would not have been able to do this without you.
