Re: Relief Effort – Hurricane Katrina
September 7, 2005
Effective immediately, 3% of all window sales (not including freight, crating, taxes, and other special charges) through 21 Sep 05 is being donated to a special fund to aid victims of Hurricane Katrina and the New Orleans flood. Please advise all prospective customers immediately. We are very serious about helping these people and believe our customers are also. So, make sure to spread the word…
This is not some marketing ploy that never comes to pass.
We have already amassed, purchased and otherwise aquired ½ of a trailerload of stuff.
10’s of 1000’s of plastic and paper cups, clamshell food containers, styrofoam cups, plastic plates and other such food serving stuff, 250+ thongs (feet variety) for kids and adults – currently 13 very tall/full pallets of items.
These are things desperately needed and specifically requested by people there on the ground running relief efforts. We have arranged to get these shipped out this weekend to the disaster area. We hope to even fill the trailerload before then. So we are DOING it now… you can pass this on and we will keep you updated.
Thanks to Sherri, Corie and staff for all their help on this!!!
