When disaster hits, the American Red Cross is thankful for supporters who help us take on the massive undertaking of getting those affected back on their feet. That's why we're happy to share that RadioShack Corp. today announced a $50,000 donation to the American Red Cross to support Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. The donation will help cover costs of shelter, food, recovery and other assistance to families affected by the storm.

“Hurricane Sandy has been a storm of historic magnitude,” said Dorvin L. Lively, CEO of RadioShack Corp. “RadioShack wants to support the Red Cross in its efforts to help the communities and families we serve get back to normal as quickly as possible.”
