FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — FEB. 4, 2013 — Hurricane Sandy devastated the eastern seaboard of the United States in late October and early November 2012, leaving dozens dead, thousands homeless and millions without power. Unfortunately, the buildings of Staten Island Recreation Association, a PATH Intl. Center in New York, were completely destroyed by the superstorm. Luckily, because of past donations made to the PATH Intl. Disaster Relief Fund, PATH Intl. is able to provide the funding to feed and care for the horses of the Staten Island Recreation Association while the center rebuilds this spring.
The PATH Intl. Disaster Relief Fund was established to assist PATH Intl. Centers with an immediate need in funding expenses not normally covered by operating insurance after natural or manmade catastrophic disasters.
Sandy, officially classified as a post tropical cyclone, will end up causing about $20 billion in property damage and more in lost business, making it one of the costliest natural disasters on record in the United States. PATH Intl. is proud to be part of the relief efforts in service to its member centers.
If you would like to join PATH Intl. in its relief efforts, help rebuild this fund in order to meet the needs of the next disaster victim. Thank you for your support.
