“We have all been watching with painfully familiar heartache the devastation that slowly drowned folks out of their homes,” explains Shelley Wald, President and Owner of WAC Lighting. “Many members of our community and industry have reached out inquiring how together we can help our friends, customers, and neighbors. To help those in need, we are hosting a Community Blood Drive.”

In cooperation with the New York Blood Center, WAC Lighting will sponsor a community blood drive to replenish blood products that are being sent to people in need in the hurricane-devastated areas, with a target goal of 200 donors.

In addition, the WAC management team, reps and employees are all coming together to raise essential funds for food banks and will be sending 10,000 manually powered emergency flashlights to local emergency shelters and friends to distribute where batteries are scarce and electricity even scarcer.

“The compassion of our friends in the industry and the community is a big part of what makes us proud to live and work with them here on Long Island,” continued Ms. Wald. “Let’s demonstrate what amazing things we can accomplish with the Love in our hearts.”
