Islandia, N.Y.-based Sherwood Lumber, an LBM distributor, says it is living up to its corporate motto, which reads: “We’ll Be There.”
In response to the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy’s path through the Northeast, the company said it will give $10,000 on behalf of its customers and employees to The Red Cross, Long Island Harvest and Habitat for Humanity.
“It is our responsibility to support those who have supported us for so many years,” the company said in an email to customers.
The company will also match all contributions to any of the same three charities.
“The devastation to the lives and property of many of our associates, customers and neighbors cannot be exaggerated,” the email reads. “Living up to our motto of 'We’ll Be There' is not just a corporate slogan but a standard that we live by each day.”
Early estimates of Sandy’s damage are at about $50 billion.
