Disaster-relief organizations and government agencies are turning to DollarDays, a premier Internet-based product wholesaler to small businesses and local distributors, to stretch their budgets and provide basics to hurricane victims.
Organizations from The Salvation Army to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security are purchasing items—from combs, razors and bandages to jogging suits, baby bottles and hand sanitizers—on www.dollardays.com.
“We have been involved in hurricane relief since the very day [Hurricane] Katrina hit the Gulf Coast,” said Marc Joseph, CEO of DollarDays. “A few weeks ago, we donated 10% of our daily sales to hurricane relief. Now, relief agencies have discovered that they can stretch their budgets while purchasing the items hurricane victims need by shopping [at] DollarDays.”
In addition, churches, small nonprofit organizations and individuals are using DollarDays as a way to purchase items to donate and distribute.
