Snow Joe® Inspired to #GenerateHope for Hurricane Dorian Relief

CARLSTADT, N.J., Sept. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Snow Joe® + Sun Joe®, a leading lawn and garden manufacturer specializing in outdoor power equipment, knows firsthand that having the right tool at the right time can make all the difference in the world, especially during weather-related emergencies. That's why they have teamed up with FIRMAN Power Equipment to donate portable power generators to lend a helping hand to those impacted by hurricane Dorian.

Snow Joe® warehouse crew hard at work preparing to ship FIRMAN® and Sun Joe® generators as part of the #GenerateHope initiative to assist in the hurricane Dorian relief efforts.

"One of the most powerful tools we have is the power to do something positive," said Snow Joe CEO Joseph Cohen. "That's why, after seeing the devastation of Dorian, I just knew we had to help."

As part of the company's #GenerateHope initiative, Snow Joe decided to pay it forward to those in need by donating 50 portable power generators that are destined to arrive in the Bahamas to assist in the Dorian relief efforts.  Their donation inspired FIRMAN to match Snow Joe's contribution, for a total of 100 generators.

"As the official online distributor of FIRMAN Power Equipment, when I heard what Joe and his team were doing – I didn't even think twice about participating. As two of the leading manufacturers of outdoor power equipment and generators, it only made sense for us to work with Snow Joe + Sun Joe to help pay it forward," said FIRMAN CEO Gregory Montgomery.

The portable generators donated by both Snow Joe and FIRMAN will provide those impacted by hurricane Dorian with power on demand wherever and whenever they need it most. The donation was inspired by the news story of the magnanimous kindness of an anonymous stranger, who purchased 100 FIRMAN generators to donate to the relief efforts.

"As part of this donation, we're calling on others to continue to pay it forward by joining the #GenerateHope movement and contributing whatever is within their means. We all have the power within us to help," continued Cohen.

Those looking to participate in other ways can also donate directly to the American Red Cross (redcross.org), provide emergency food relief through donations to World Central Kitchen (donate.wck.org), or use the hashtag #GenerateHope to spread awareness of this powerful cause.
