Doing our bit following Hurricane Sandy

By Kyrus Keenan Wescott

On Monday 29th October, one of the worst hurricanes ever to hit North East America struck.

Causing chaos, Hurricane Sandy tore her way through New York, New Jersey and the North East coast as well as Canada and the Caribbean.

Killing over 100 people and causing an estimated $65.6 billion worth of damage, Hurricane Sandy flooded the subway lines, tunnels, and streets and cut off power across the area.

As well as our office in New York being shut down, many staff within the office were personally affected by the disaster, as well as many of our clients and candidates.

In the days after the event, we at Nigel Frank arranged a charity ‘dress down’ day, across our 5 Global headquarters, in aid of the Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund. With all staff participating we raised $2,500 dollars towards the fund.

We also partnered with the Salesforce.com Foundation, who matched our collection, adding to a total of $5,000 towards helping those affected by the disaster.

Our thoughts and support remain with those still re-building their lives and businesses in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
