Over the course of several weeks, Bluffdale-based Goal Zero has donated $594,670 in products, as well as other services, to victims affected by Hurricane Sandy.
In the wake of the storm, Goal Zero employees filled a 53-foot trailer with portable solar powered equipment and quickly mobilized the transportation to get supplies to New York. The company also sent a team of employees to the disaster zone to distribute the products that would power cell phones, emergency lights and critical home and health machines.
From Nov. 1 to Nov. 15, Goal Zero tracked all sales made at participating retailers, as well as at its online store, and matched the same in the form of an additional donation. With the help of SBA Global Logistic Services, which covered the shipping costs to New York, Goal Zero packed a second truck of rechargers and lights, and dispatched another team to distribute them.
