Local Amway Independent Business Owners will distribute approximately 25 pallets (more than $150,000) in free cleaning supplies, provided by Amway, to Monmouth and Ocean County Shore area residents affected by Hurricane Sandy.  Products include all-purpose, multi-purpose, bathroom and kitchen cleaners and disinfectants will be available for pick up at no cost on a first come, first served basis.

This event will take place Sunday (1/13) between10AM-5PM at the Brick Police Athletic League at 60 Drum Point Road in Brick.

This effort is the latest in a long history of Amway Independent Business Owners (IBOs) regularly mobilizing to respond to local needs resulting from natural disasters. Millions of lives have been impacted by the effects of Hurricane Sandy, including tens of thousands of Amway IBOs whose homes, businesses and families were located directly in the path of the storm.

Amway previously contributed more than $400,000 in food, personal items and cleaning supplies to those struggling in the New York and New Jersey areas following the storm. The company also is accepting donations to the American Red Cross on its website and is committed to matching up to $100,000 in contributions from IBOs and employees.
