IWDC Helps Members Affected by Hurricane Sandy

The IWDC operates under a unique set of guidelines. As a Cooperative, there are unique principles to follow and the seventh Cooperative Principle is “Concern For Community.” When Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast, it wasn’t a matter of can we help; it was a matter of what is the best way to help.

IWDC initially contacted its members that were in the path of the hurricane and made sure everyone was safe, and then coordinated relief supplies with Industrial Welding Supply in Sayreville, NJ, with help from its network of vendors and member distributors throughout North America. The IWDC staff filled up pallets of relief supplies and donations and shipped everything to Industrial Welding Supply where employees dispersed the supplies to where they were needed the most. IWDC wishes to express its gratitude to its partnersk who stepped up to help others in time of need. Thank you, Scott Cusick and your staff at Industrial Welding Supply.

IWDC assisted another member whose business was almost completely destroyed from the hurricane: Liberty Industrial Gases in Brooklyn, NY. The flood waters destroyed over 80% of Liberty’s inventory, office supplies, computers and building. IWDC’s community of vendors and member distributors came through without hesitation. Liberty Industrial Gases has been receiving free product, sample products, extended terms and more to keep their business going.
