Special Message from the President – Hurricane Sandy

Posted by admin on Oct 30, 2012 12:18:00 PM

On behalf of the AAST Board of Directors, I want to express my concern for all of our members and colleagues in the mid-Atlantic and northeast regions who have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy.  Widespread flooding and devastating winds have caused havoc, leaving millions without power, displacing many from their homes, and taking lives.

My sincere hope is for the safety of all of our members and their loved ones.  For those of us who are in other parts of the country, we can lend our support by giving to one of the many disaster relief agencies that are hard at work in the region.

One of these groups is the American Red Cross, which has opened shelters in multiple states to those seeking refuge from the storm.  You can make a donation online, by text or by phone. Visit www.redcross.org, call 1-800-RED-CROSS, or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Thank you for your help.

Melinda Trimble, RST, RPSGT, LRCP
AAST President
