MaxLite, a manufacturer of LED technologies, has donated 1,000 compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) to help victims of Hurricane Sandy who are rebuilding their homes and businesses after the storm.
“As a New Jersey company, we are proud to give back to other New Jersey residents and businesses who have suffered losses during the storm,” says Yon Sung, MaxLite president and CEO. “We appreciate the outstanding efforts and tireless work of Gov. Christie, his staff and other government officials, and we are pleased to contribute to this relief effort.”
MaxLite’s contribution includes 500 MaxLite Enhancement Suite 8-watt A19 CFL Bulbs, which replace 20-watt incandescent bulbs, and 500 Enhancement Suite 25-watt Spiral CFL Bulbs, designed as replacements for 100-watt incandescent bulbs. The bulbs offer instant-on capabilities, quality color, high lumen performance and long life.
MaxLite CFLs were distributed to shore towns and residents who request light bulbs, as well as organizations, such as Habitat for Humanity, The United Way and many other charitable grassroots 501(c)(3) registered organizations.
The Christie administration has created a donation hotline for tangible donations to assist Hurricane Sandy victims recover. Corporations, organizations, and individuals that want to participate are encouraged to call the hotline at (855) NJDONATE or email [email protected] before organizing a shipment or initiating a collection drive in their community to match goods and items with the needs of Hurricane Sandy’s victims. The Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, a separate initiative announced by Governor Christie and First Lady Mary Pat Christie, collects financial donations to aid in Hurricane Sandy relief.
