CELEBRITIES FROM OUR AREA, HELP OUR AREA!
It is inspiring to witness and be a part of the effort to help our area rebuild from the destructive forces of Sandy. So many people continue to be a part of this massive effort to clean up and rebuild. The people from the NYC metro area continue to get assistance from numerous charities including the American Red Cross which will be receiving a donation shortly from Arethusa Group.
Arethusa Group sells Xtreme Coated Cover and other grades of fine printing paper and paper board. Check our weekly specials for a list of our discounted inventory.

NYU Hospital Staffers Work Overtime — By now, you might have heard the dramatic story of the NYU hospital evacuation. For a few hours, New Yorkers feverishly checked Twitter…and then the power went out. Nurses and doctors worked overtime, especially caring for the 20 babies in a neo-natal unit, manually breathing for them. Teams built “sleds” to lead people down, and the nine-story, in-the-dark trip wasn’t easy. But it showed true heroism. (Huffington Post)
DEVASTATION IN RED HOOK, BROOKLYN
This is an image that is near and dear to my heart. The two warehouse buildings seen in this picture were severely damaged due to Hurricane Sandy. The far building is built on a pier and it was inundated by the storm surge. My friends at Eye Graphics and Printing had over eight feet of water in their manufacturing facility and have yet to re-open.
This is one of many areas in the New York Metro area that has been affected by Hurricane Sandy. We at Arethusa Group are trying to do our part by donating 1% of our total sales to the American Red Cross through the end of 2012. If you would like to participate through us then place an order for the products we sell.
I am proud to announce that through our efforts with our customers we have raised another $360 during the week of November 26th. This brings our grand total for just under two weeks to $870. Thank you to everyone who has participated! Let’s keep the momentum going.

Arethusa Group began its campaign to donate 1% of its total sales to the American Red Cross on November 19th 2012. The campaign will run through the end of 2012. “So many people from our area have been affected by Hurricane Sandy and we wanted to do our part as a company,” said Matthew Feldman of Arethusa Group.
