NFI is sending a truckload of Polartec fabric from a warehouse in Devens, MA, to a Goodwill Industries facility in Miami as part of the relief efforts under way for victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
“We are honored to join forces with Polartec in providing much-needed assistance to Haitian earthquake victims,” said Sid Brown, president of Cherry Hill, NJ-based NFI. “When they told us of their desire to contribute their high performance Polartec fabric, we didn’t hesitate to provide a truck and driver to make it happen.”
The truck arrived in Miami on Tuesday. Goodwill will take the Polartec fabric and produce blankets to be sent to Haiti.
“I was looking for a company to partner with us to move our donated fabric, and the first name that came to my mind was our warehouse partner, NFI,” said Peter Sobha, director of global credit, collections and logistics for Polartec. “I called and they responded within the hour with an affirmative.”
