Support Pouring from Princeton Businesses to Hurricane Sandy’s Victims

Princeton, NJ (January 8, 2013) – In support of the victims devastated by Hurricane Sandy, the Princeton business community joined together on November 20th and created the Princeton Hurricane Sandy Relief Drive.

 Fifty-four businesses in the Princeton Community participated by donating a percentage of their sales from the dedicated day, which resulted in over $36,000 in donations. This generous amount was distributed to charities such as the “Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund” and “Restore Our Shore,” benefiting those most affected in New Jersey’s coastal areas.

 In an outpouring of support – from restaurants to retail shops, media companies and more – the area’s local businesses donated more than just dollars. Other contributions included advertising, printing, radio airtime and graphic designs. That, along with the percentage of sales earned that day, enabled the drive to donate the monies to much needed families.

 “We are grateful to all of the local businesses who helped support this effort and are proud to be part of such a giving community,” said Jack Morrison, President, JM Group, who organized the drive.

 Though the hurricane happened months ago, families continue to suffer. Rebuilding will take time, and money, and community efforts such as the Princeton Hurricane Sandy Relief Drive, is merely one way to offer assistance to those in need.
