A Message From Our CEO: Hurricane Sandy Relief

I'm sure by now you've read about the aftermath of the superstorm that affected much of the East coast of the United States earlier this week. I hope that you will join me in keeping all those affected in our thoughts as communities up and down the eastern seaboard recover from this disaster.

Speaking of recovery, I am happy to report that our Foundation stands ready to assist members who have been negatively affected by the storm. The Foundation is prepared to offer Helping Hands to Member Grants for up to $1,000 for current Sons of Norway members who are displaced from their homes due to heavy damage as a result of Hurricane Sandy.

If you have been displaced due to the storms, or know another member who has been, notify your Zone Directors, District President or Cindy Olson at the Foundation office (800-945-8851) to learn how you can receive one of these grants. If you were not affected by the storms, I'd like you to consider donating to the Foundation's Humanitarian Fund, so it can continue its great work of supporting our members in a time of need.

In closing, my thoughts and those of the entire Sons of Norway staff are with our members on the east coast this week as they begin the slow process of recovery after such a devastating event.
