Throughout the month of April, locally-owned Apple retailer, Cos Cob TV & Audio will donate profits from sales of Apple-branded products to the American Red Cross.
“The Red Cross is thrilled to partner with Cos Cob TV & Audio on this important fundraising initiative,” said Mary Young, CEO American Red Cross Metro New York North. “Nearly 200 times each day, Americans turn to the Red Cross for comfort and care following disasters—most of which are home fires. Generous donors, like Cos Cob TV & Audio, support our mission across the country and right here at home.”
Locally, the Metro New York North Red Cross Chapter assists approximately 1,000 people affected by nearly 200 incidents every year in Greenwich and New York’s Lower Hudson Valley. Incidents have included Hurricane Irene; plane crash in Armonk; and the recent fire on Hamilton Avenue.
“We believe that giving back to the community, both locally and globally, is an integral part of our business,” said Sean Mecsery, owner of Cos Cob TV & Audio. “Our partnership with the American Red Cross during the month of April will help assure that they will be here here when people need them. We hope the popularity of Apple computers and other Apple products will make this a tremendous fundraising opportunity for the American Red Cross.”
Cos Cob TV & Audio is located at 5 Strickland Road in Cos Cob.
