geoAMPS Assists Red Cross Hurricane Relief Efforts

geoAMPS is proud to partner with theAmerican Red Cross to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The storm, which slammed into the New Jersey coast in October, still impacts thousands. Many are still without homes, clothing and food.
 
Thanks to generosity of fellow Americans, the Red Cross has been providing assistance since before the massive storm made landfall. The Red Cross is committed to continuing that assistance for weeks as families get back on their feet. Additional contributions from Americans will help the Red Cross provide these urgently needed services.
 
geoAMPS is joining this effort and extends an invitation to others to help the company raise money to help those impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
 
Now through Jan. 1, 2013, geoAMPS will donate $1 for every “like” received on the geoAMPS Facebook page, up to $3,000, to the American Red Cross to help with 2012 hurricane relief efforts.
 
This is likely to be the largest Red Cross response to a single disaster in the United States in the past five years. Nearly 5,100 Red Cross workers are supporting shelters and providing meals and supplies at fixed sites and driving through neighborhoods.
 
Since Hurricane Sandy made landfall, the American Red Cross has:

- Served 6.6 million meals and snacks
- Distributed 3.9 million relief items, such as hygiene items, cleaning supplies, flashlights, rakes, shovels, tarps, dust masks, work gloves and cold weather items
- Provided more than 77,000 overnight shelter stays
- Made more than 77,000 health services and emotional support contacts
- Mobilized more than 10,500 trained workers from all 50 states; approximately 90 percent of whom are volunteers.
