Miele and its dealers, including Best Vacuum, have raised a $145,000 donation to the American Red Cross to help in that organization’s Sandy relief efforts. The money was raised as part of the “Help Us, Help Our Neighbors” program where Miele and Miele dealers work together to help the communities in which they live and work.
In this case, the money was raised by earmarking a portion of each vacuum cleaner and dishwasher sale made from Nov. 19 through Dec. 19.
While the event has long since passed, the Red Cross continues to provide relief services to devastated neighborhoods in New Jersey and New York. Months after Hurricane Sandy devastated neighborhoods in New York and New Jersey, some 1,000 Red Cross disaster workers are still providing food, water, health services and emotional support to those affected.
We’re proud to have been a part of this effort and hope the folks in the areas hit by the storm get back to normal as quickly as possible. If you’re interested in donating to the American Red Cross’ efforts, visit their Web site.
