NYC Customers Commend Outstanding NYSID/Member Agency Storm Relief Efforts!

Category: General — NYSID @ 2:39 pm

In the immediate aftermath of Superstorm Sandy in October, a number of our longstanding customers in the metro NYC area requested emergency support through NYSID member agencies. This unprecedented need called for cleaning office buildings and residences, setting up emergency shelter stations and laundering voluminous mounds of extra linens.

Springing into action, NYSID members pulled teams together and went to work on behalf of their communities, helping to secure the safety and comfort of scores of individuals and families.

Comments from customers following service completion are nothing short of admirable:

"Keeping the shelters clean and sanitary was a critical necessity and all your efforts helped to protect the well-being of many New Yorkers." [NYC Office of Emergency Management]

"You and your employees have helped improve the quality of life of our residents who are suffering a great deal." [NYC Housing Authority]

"True partners of NYC." [NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services]

This praise is especially noteworthy when you reflect on the fact that those performing this work also experienced the storm’s devastation as community residents – New Yorkers helping New Yorkers.

"I can’t thank our members and their work teams enough for their positive impact in the aftermath of a horrendous event," stated Joe Messina, VP of Sales. "To be characterized as a ‘true partner’ to the city speaks to mutual respect for missions of service to diverse New Yorkers."
