Stamford, CT - AmeriCares has delivered more than $145,000 in Johnson & Johnson products to Sandy victims in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Hygiene kits donated by the multi-national manufacturer were given to survivors within only days of the storm. In the following weeks, AmeriCares followed up with deliveries of Johnson & Johnson baby care supplies, disinfectants, and glucose meters and test strips for diabetic patients.

Johnson & Johnson has partnered with AmeriCares for more than 25 years, providing aid to people in need in 63 countries. The company has provided AmeriCares with emergency aid for dozens of disasters, including the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the humanitarian crisis in Libya and Hurricane Isaac in the U.S.

“Johnson & Johnson is a trusted AmeriCares partner whose aid consistently helps people suffering from both emergencies and the everyday crises of poverty,” said Geoff Kneisel, AmeriCares vice president of corporate relations. “After Sandy, Johnson & Johnson’s generous donations fulfilled the most pressing needs of displaced families and vulnerable patients requiring medical care.”

AmeriCares relief workers have been working nonstop since Sandy struck, providing $1.6 million in aid benefitting nearly 250,000 storm victims in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. To date, AmeriCares has delivered 93 aid shipments for affected families in the hardest hit communities and awarded over $450,000 in grants to health clinics and partner organizations helping storm victims. The humanitarian aid organization also deployed its 40-foot mobile clinic to New York City to assist health care facilities unable to treat patients because of storm damage and power outages
