For the past few weeks, Mercury One has been collecting donations from people across the country in order to provide relief for victims of Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast. Mercury One has already provided relief to hard hit areas of New York City, including Coney Island. This weekend, Mercury One teamed up with HopeNYC, a local New York City church, for their Day Of Hope providing supplies and care packages for people affected by the hurricane.
Donations made to Mercury One's disaster relief fund were used to purchase goods and supplies for the care packages, and Mercury One staff and volunteers were on site helping to coordinate, organize, and provide relief for people who are still recovering from the devastating hurricane.
