Hostway will present the check to the Red Cross on Tuesday, April 2, 10:00 a.m. at the San Antonio Area Red Cross Chapter, 3642 E. Houston St.

Sandy’s devastation will be felt for a very long time. With support from people and businesses like Hostway, the American Red Cross will continue providing resources and support to families with long term needs.

The Red Cross has deployed more than 16,800 disaster workers to help those affected by Sandy. “The American Red Cross is committed to spending every dollar raised to help families rebuild their lives and return to normal as they resume their lives,” said Mike Bennett, CEO, San Antonio Area Chapter.

Contributions to Superstorm Sandy efforts will continue to support people with long term needs such as: housing and community assistance clean-up and repair items, physical and mental health services, distribution of food and water. Hostway’s contribution will go a long way in helping the Red Cross continue its effort to support our neighbors on the East coast.

“Like so many others watching the devastation unfold on television, our hearts were broken for the thousands of residents affected by Superstorm Sandy,” said John Martis, Hostway President and CEO. “Motivated to make a meaningful impact to aid recovery efforts, we decided to make this contribution to the Red Cross in lieu of our usual holiday corporate gifts, and we encouraged other businesses to do the same. Many of our clients expressed how grateful they were that we’d decided to put that money to good use helping people get back on their feet, rather than sending them some over-commercialized trinket.”
