Customers are encouraged to enter the code in the shopping cart area.
Based in North Carolina, Business Supply was spared the brunt of Sandy. But that doesn’t mean the company isn’t familiar with the lasting effects of devastating weather. “From Hurricane Fran in 1999 to Hurricane Irene last year, we’ve had a first-hand look at the devastation caused by these disasters,” said Sean Godier, VP of Ecommerce for the retailer. “We want to help everyone suffering from Sandy to get back on their feet as quickly as possible. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this tragedy.”
The American Red Cross response to Sandy is very large and will be very costly, affecting a massive area spanning much of the eastern half of the country. Donations can be made by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
“We know the American Red Cross is on the ground and working hard. They’ve indicated that financial donations are needed the most, so that’s what we’re going to provide to help with the relief efforts,” said Godier.
