LANshack.com appeals for donations to Red Cross Hurricane Sandy relief effort

Based in Beachwood, NJ, the online cabling and connectivity retailer says it is "feeling very fortunate to be spared the devastation that [its] neighbors have experienced."

LANshack.com, an online retailer of network cabling and connectivity products based in New Jersey, was spared the devastation of Superstorm Sandy. However, the company is now appealing to its extensive customer base to support the American Red Cross relief effort for its neighbors in the Northeast U.S. who were affected by Hurricane Sandy and by subsequent winter storm Athena.

Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc on the Northeast coast, crippling most of New Jersey, Manhattan and Staten Island, NY with thousands of homes totaled and thousands of people still without power over a week later. Another storm hit the region this week; winter storm Athena brought frigid temperatures, wind and snow to the already hard hit area. Many people were forced to evacuate for the first storm, and others who did not lose their homes have no heat, no lights, and no way to cook food.

Based in Beachwood, NJ, LANshack.com says it is "feeling very fortunate to be spared the devastation that [its] neighbors have experienced and has offered assistance directly to some families in their town whose houses were destroyed." In a special e-newsletter, the company is now appealing to its customers in the U.S. and around the world to support the American Red Cross relief effort.

To help victims of Superstorm Sandy, donations to the American Red Cross can be made by visiting Red Cross disaster relief, or you can text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
