Nourish America's disaster relief critical for saturated Northeast

Nourish America's disaster relief efforts in North Carolina and New Jersey are still in full swing providing assistance to thousands who have been afflicted by both Hurricane Irene and now Tropical Storm Lee. Hurricane Irene left a trail of water and destruction between $7-13 billion in her wake late last month creating record flooding across much of New England. Today the Northeast is back on the defensive with over 100,000 people under mandatory evacuations to prepare for the focused band of rain generated by Tropical Storm Lee. 

To provide relief in this disaster, Nourish America continues to partner with the National Foundation for Women Legislators (NFWL) to get critical supplies and food into the hands of disaster victims. "We are very pleased to team up with the NFWL once again. These women are passionate about getting help to their constituents. They know where the need is and are tireless in cutting through the red tape so that we can help those families who need us," said Mary Morton, Nourish America's Program Director. Working hand in hand with Nourish America is NFWL CEO Robin Read, State Representative Annie Mobley, State Senator Diane Allen, Commissioner Julie Acton, Mayor Kimberly Brown, Mayor Deborah Buzby-Cope, Councilwoman Nancy Davis, Councilwoman Ellen Dickson, Deputy Mayor Serena DiMaso, Assemblywoman Elease Evans, Mayor Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Deputy Mayor Lorraine Hatcher, Deputy Mayor Marlene Jass, Committeewoman Anita Lovely, Councilwoman Sheree McGowan, Freeholder Mary Ann O'Brien and Freeholder Susan Sheppard.

Nourish America's donors have been extremely generous during this year's busy disaster season, donating over $1.5 million in nutritional products. Just for Hurricane Irene relief alone, Nourish America supporters NOW Foods, Clif Bar & Company, Pharmavite, Alacer Corp and Healthy Direction have donated over 200,000 protein and energy bars as well as nutritional supplements and critical supplies for thousands.

State Senator Diane Allen of New Jersey says, “We are very grateful for all the generous donations of nutritional products from Nourish America. With the presence of Tropical Storm Lee, Northern New Jersey is still in great need of relief. Your continuing help is deeply appreciated."
