When Hurricane Sandy pounded the East coast, J&P Cycles and its employees, wanted to do something to assist those in need. Initially, J&P lent a small truck with donated pallets of water to a local man and his family who single-handedly spearheaded an effort to collect items and then drove them to Union Beach, N.J.

Empowered that we could do something more, we reached out to some of the most caring individuals one will ever meet – our customers. Through $1 donations added to orders, and J&P’s pledge to match every dollar donated, more than $7,000 has been raised so far. J&P employees have generously donated close to $1,000. The company will also be matching this amount.

It’s not too late to make a donation to benefit the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief. J&P will be accepting donations until 11:59 CT tomorrow night, Nov. 30. To have your donation matched, donate by calling: 1-800-318-4823. You can also donate online at http://www.redcross.org.
