Relief Through Retail
A great way to donate to those affected by Hurricane Sandy is by purchasing apparel. Friends will love keeping notes in the pocket-sized Sandy Relief Notebooks ($10) and sporting the Sandy Relief T-Shirt ($25). Help the extensively damaged Rockaways neighborhood by ordering custom MTA-licensed H line merchandise, such as T-shirts ($20) and magnets ($3.50). All proceeds from sales will directly assist The Graybeards' Rockaway relief works.
Purchase a custom "Staten Strong" sweatshirt ($50) that shows your support for Staten Island (one of the hardest hit areas) or a Sandy-inspired "I Heart NY" T-shirt ($40). All profits from the sale of these items benefit the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. If you're in the market for a wool blanket ($115) or down-filled vest ($150), Penfield is donating $10 from your online purchase to the Red Cross' Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund. —CP
