Partnering with the Port Logistics Group, PEI’s New Jersey warehouse and inventory management company, the Atlantic City Rescue Mission and Chabad Lubavitch of Staten Island, clothing donations will be accepted from now until November 16 th in order to speed up donations and distribute all goods before Thanksgiving. Located at 125 Castle Road, Secaucus, NJ, 07094, donations will be accepted via mail or in-person between 9am-5pm. Packages should be clearly marked Attn: Hurricane Relief Effort.

The first email to consumers blasted last Friday, November 9 th giving people a heads-up to start gathering items while final donation details were being hammered out. With Port Logistics warehouses damaged, associates worked throughout the weekend to bring the 125 Castle location up and running in order to handle the influx. On Wednesday, November 7 th, a follow-up email with address, times and outreach partners was released to the company’s www.perryellis.com, www.originalpenguin.com, www.rafaellasportswear.com, www.cubavera.com and www.candccalifornia.com fan base with the subject line “Hurricane Sandy Relief. Share Your Warmth, We’ll Match It.”

“Like everyone in the region, we, along with our associates, are facing these challenges together. As we have before, we have weathered the storm, now we will rise above its aftermath together,” continued Mr. Feldenkreis. “We have associates who have lost their homes and the memories within it, yet are using all the strength they have to help others in need, and others driving sixty miles out of their way to pick up colleagues who are stranded with no means of transportation. The altruism I am witnessing is extremely moving. It makes me proud to be part of such an inspiring team.”

The company’s Perry Ellis and Cubavera full-price and outlet stores also jumped on board with the relief effort with an at-register donation option. From now until December 31, 2012, customers have the opportunity to donate any amount to sufferers of this unfortunate tragedy. For their generosity, donors will receive 10% off their purchase with donation of $5 or more. 100% of the funds collected will be donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Fund.
