The devastation from Hurricane Sandy has had a significant impact on much of the East Coast, leaving thousands of individuals with substantial damage to home and property. After hearing of the tremendous losses faced by many affected communities, Bosch has committed $340,000 in funding and in-kind donations to help the victims of this natural disaster.
“The devastation made us all realize just how fortunate we are that everyone on our team was reported safe,” saidMike Mansuetti, president of Robert Bosch LLC. “Guided by our slogan ‘Invented for Life,’ we are compelled to use our resources to let those impacted by the disaster know that we care.” Measures of support include:
Working in partnership, Bosch and Lowe's will furnish 24 vans donated by General Motors with power tools and equipment. These Mobile Response Units will be driven by Habitat and partner volunteers, including Bosch associates, to assist residents of devastated communities in Monmouth County, N.J. and Breezy Point, N.Y.
“While no one company can help every community in need, especially in a disaster of this size, Bosch is striving to do its part as so many communities along the East Coast can repair, rebuild and renew. On behalf of the entire Bosch team,” said Mansuetti, “to those who have been impacted by Sandy: You have our support and we are confident in your efforts to rebuild.”
