IDT Energy, an independent electricity and natural gas provider for over 500,000 residential and small business customers, donated $50,000 to the American Red Cross hurricane recovery efforts.
An initial donation of $25,000 was delivered to Robert Maruster, Chair of the American Red Cross Greater New York Region’s Board of Directors, and IDT contributed another $25,000 as the program proceeded. The funds were used to provide food, shelter, clothing and other assistance to families impacted by the storm.
Geoff Rochwarger, CEO of IDT Energy, said:
“Many people in the Mid-Atlantic region, including many of our customers, have suffered tremendously as a result of the storm. To assist them, and in support of the critically important work being done by local police, fire, EMT and rescue workers, we are pleased to support the American Red Cross’s hurricane recovery effort.”
According to IDT, many of its customers were affected by the storm. In an effort to provide much needed support, the company recruited additional customer service representatives, as well as offered a $25 rebate on electric service to IDT Energy customers.
“We believe strongly in helping families recover from this devastating storm. We intend this contribution to help kick-start the recovery effort, and we encourage other businesses and individuals to support the American Red Cross’ important efforts.”
