Some Bronx companies are sending basic necessities such as food, water and a source of communication to aid Hurricane Katrina victims. Verizon Wireless is sending 12 Bronx workers to the south to help a Louisiana store restore service.
The company says hundreds of its workers volunteered their time to help those devastated by the Category 5 storm. Verizon Wireless says those traveling to the bayou state were chosen based on seniority. The volunteers heading to the sportsman?s paradise say they are happy to help restore some sense of normalcy to the area.
In addition to providing manpower, Verizon Wireless says they are also matching any employee?s monetary donations to the Red Cross.
