November 14, 2012

ARCOLA, IL — The Libman Company has partnered with the Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI), the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA), the New Jersey PTA and Lake Riviera Middle School PTA in Brick, New Jersey, to donate more than $20,000 worth of Libman’s top selling mop to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort, according to a press release.

libmanBrick, New Jersey, was one of the hardest hit communities and remains under a state of emergency, the release stated.

"A partnership with HFI and the National PTA was a great opportunity to quickly get our mops into the hands of the families who needed them most," said Andrew Libman, one of the fourth-generation company owners.

According to the release, prior to Libman's donation, the New Jersey PTA had many requests from the community for mops and other cleaning supplies.

In addition, the National PTA last week announced a special grant program to assist those schools impacted by Sandy; the grant money may be used to repair storm damage to school libraries and playgrounds, purchase new books and supplies and much more, the release noted.
