Arpin Van Lines Transports 6 Truckloads of Supplies to Texas for Hurricane Recovery EffortsSeptember 22, 2017
Six full-sized Arpin Van Lines moving trucks rolled off Cardi’s Furniture parking lots on September 9, filled with cleaning and building supplies bound for Houston, Texas.
“Hurricane Harvey may have disappeared from the headlines, but it will be many months before Houston and the surrounding communities recover and rebuild from the devastating floods,” said David Arpin, president and CEO of Arpin Van Lines. “We are touched by the overwhelming outpouring of support from our Southern New England neighbors, friends, businesses, nonprofits, cities and towns, who have generously donated cleaning and building supplies to aid in the hurricane recovery efforts. Transporting these supplies is just one small way we can help.”
Arpin Van Lines, in collaboration with Cardi’s Furniture and other community partners, promoted the September 9 supply drive across broadcast and social media. Arpin trucks were posted at four Cardi’s locations and received the donated supplies. Volunteers helped unload cars and trucks, and then transferred the supplies into the Arpin trailers until they were tightly packed. The American Red Cross also accepted monetary donations at the drop-off locations.
The supplies are expected to help clean and rebuild up to 1,000 homes.
