Victims of Hurricane Irma will also receive assistance from Good360, the charity the International Housewares Association has partnered with to provide hurricane victims with home goods products as they rebuild their lives and homes. IHA previously announced its partnership with Good360 to help Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey.
Good360 said it is working with the Federal Emergency Management Association to help shelters with immediate needs such as personal items, toiletries and water. IHA members can help Good360 pre-position product to help in the longer-term rebuilding phase in Texas and Florida.
Houseware companies with products that can help in any stage of the disaster can complete Good360’s online donation form and the Good360 staff will get the donated product to the right place to best assist the victims of Harvey and Irma, noted IHA. When making a donation, companies should note that they are members of IHA to help Good360 track the donations. Companies can also request their donations go to a specific area of need.
“Along with the millions of residents dealing with the devastation of Irma, more than 50 IHA member companies are located in Florida and were greatly affected as well. The work of Good360 and the generosity of the housewares industry will help make a difference for millions of hurricane victims in Florida, Texas and other areas impacted by Irma and Harvey,” said Phil Brandl, IHA president and CEO.
