LOS ANGELES, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Abbyson Living has partnered with Family-to-Family, Inc., a national relief organization, to aid families devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
Hurricane Sandy decimated the East Coast in the fall of 2012, becoming one of the costliest natural disasters in US history. Abbyson Living, compelled to provide assistance, reached out to Family-to-Family in the aftermath of the storm to support families in need.
Family-to-Family is a non-profit national hunger and poverty relief organization dedicated to creating a bridge between impoverished communities and those that can afford to give. They connected Abbyson Living with families living in a low-income housing project in the hard-hit area of Far Rockaway, NY. Several families received a new leather sectional couch from Abbyson Living.
"The essence and mission of Family-to-Family is facilitating one-on-one connections – linking those in need with those who want to help by 'sharing their bounty'", explained Pam Koner, founder and executive director of Family-to–Family. "It was a natural fit to match Abbyson, a company whose furniture pieces can essentially 'make' a home, with specific families whose houses were devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Through their furniture donations, Abbyson was able to help these families renew that feeling of home."
Abbyson Living has contributed to providing relief to those in need for many years. They've been commended for their aid efforts by notable organizations like the American Red Cross.
"Red Cross is very thankful for its partnership with Abbyson Living at all levels. Their commitment to Superstorm Sandy disaster relief was significant, and we are so appreciative of their day-to-day support of the life-saving mission of the American Red Cross in Ventura County," said Jim McGee, CEO of the American Red Cross Central Coast Region.
