Our neighbors in New York and New Jersey have been hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, a fire that destroyed over 100 homes and a Nor'easter that buried the still standing homes and wreckage under several inches of snow earlier this month. While we know New Yorkers are a resilient bunch, we also know they need our help. With guidance from Robin Hood, NEMO has sent 50 sleeping bags to St. John's Bread and Life in Brooklyn.
â€œWe had sleeping bag samples left over from our 2011 Adventure Product Testing Program that we had set aside with the intent of donating; we just hadn't yet picked the organization. When Hurricane Sandy and the following Nor'easter hit, we knew there'd be a need. We're glad to be able to do something for our neighbors in New York and we've put the word out to other outdoor industry companies, hoping they'll jump on board,â€ said Cam Brensinger, president and founder of NEMO.
For more information on how you can help in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, you can contact Robin Hood or The Red Cross.
