TOLEDO, Ohio, March 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of Red Cross Month, the 1-800-SWEEPER Foundation is pleased to announce a $5,000 donation to the American Red Cross. A check was presented to a local representative of the Red Cross during the National Pavement Expos' "Sweepers Night Out" in Cleveland, OH on February 7, 2018. The 1-800-SWEEPER Foundation was created in 2016 to support humanitarian disaster relief, environmental education and community beautification projects.
1-800-SWEEPER is very pleased to make this $5,000 donation to the American Red Cross, but they are not done yet! They have joined forces with Schwarze Industries to sponsor a Recovery Raffle to aid in disaster relief from the series of devastating hurricanes, fires and floods that hit the United States in late 2017. The Recovery Raffle offers a chance to win a brand new Schwarze Supervac Updraft power sweeper or $50,000 in cash! Raffle tickets are still available and will continue until February 25, 2019 or until the goal of raising $100,000 is reached. Tickets can be purchased by visiting: www.1800sweeperfoundation.com
"1-800-SWEEPER Foundation was founded because 1-800-SWEEPER members had a desire to do more for the communities we serve," states Mike Lucht, Founding Member of 1-800-SWEEPER. "It is heartbreaking to see all that has been lost and destroyed as a result of the 2017 hurricanes and fires. We knew we had to do something and decided the raffle would be an excellent way to contribute to the relief efforts."
"The Red Cross is pleased to accept such a generous donation from the 1-800-SWEEPER Foundation," declared Michael N. Parks, Regional CEO of Northeast Ohio American Red Cross. "The hurricane recovery and relief work will continue for many years, and this contribution will help in restoring homes, businesses, and lives."
