Satco Products Inc . has donated more than $25,000 to three local Long Island charities following Superstorm Sandy. The fund drive began soon after the storm hit and a full picture of the destruction was realized.
“The devastation caused by this storm has prompted everyone at Satco to think about our neighbors in need. Being a local business, almost every employee at Satco knew someone directly or indirectly affected by the storm. We wanted our relief efforts to help as many of our neighbors as possible, as quickly as possible during these trying times,” says Bill Gildin, Satco President.
Satco established an initial donation of $10,000, and then set a goal of $5,000 of employee contributions, which Satco matched by $2 for every $1 contributed, totaling an additional $15,000. Satco employees from all over the country contributed. The employee goal was reached early-on, and Satco has contributed beyond the target of $25,000 to three local Long Island charity organizations: The Five Towns Community Chest, The United Way of Long Island, and Pocket Change to Make a Change.
