SUPPORT FOR SANDY SURVIVORS
Kafka Granite participates in relief efforts: With thousands of homes destroyed due to Hurricane Sandy, families throughout the East Coast were left with little to nothing. Like many communities, Mosinee, Wisconsin joined the efforts to provide aid to these fellow Americans in need. The Mosinee Area Action Committee organized a relief effort, and Kafka Granite was part of the action. The goal? To send a 53-foot semi trailer filled with donated goods to New Jersey. Kafka Granite volunteered to serve as a drop off location.
Throughout the weeks following Hurricane Sandy, families, church groups, businesses, and organizations from the Mosinee area dropped off new and gently used items at Kafka Granite. Our employees joined the relief effort, as many of them came to work with donated goods. By Friday, November 16, Kafka Granite’s storage space was piled high with non-perishable food, blankets, clothing, diapers, cleaning supplies, toiletries, and other items. Volunteers then packed up the goods and filled a 53-foot semi trailer, which left the following Sunday for New Jersey. Roehl Transport of Marshfield, Wisconsin donated the truck, driver, and fuel expenses. The donations will be delivered to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, a subsidiary of Feeding America. The donations will then be distributed among 17 food pantries in some of the most devastated areas of New Jersey.
Kafka Granite encourages you to join the relief efforts and find a drop off location in your community!
