Alpharetta, Ga. — It’s the season of giving and while Hansgrohe finds ways to give back all year round, the company has decided to continue its support of the Bailey House for its end of year contribution. The Bailey House has been providing housing and support services to homeless men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS in New York City. The organization was recently hit hard by Superstorm Sandy and is now more in need than ever.
After the storm flooded the Bailey-Holt House, the organization’s landmark Manhattan facility and residence, temporary housing was found for its residents who require regular emergency care. Bailey House staff was fully prepared for the well being of its clients, residents, and neighbors—but the financial burden of the natural disaster was devastating. “As we begin the incredibly complex and time-consuming process of cleaning up the building and assessing the level of repairs needed, we are grateful for Hansgrohe USA’s $5,000 donation to our Bailey-Holt House Emergency Fund to assist with the enormous costs of restoring the residence,” says Cathy Krugman, Chief Development Officer.
According to Russ Wheeler, president of Hansgrohe North America, “The Bailey House has aided the NYC community for 30 years. When we heard they were in need, we immediately reached out to help our New York City neighbor. As the clean-up continues, we plan to continue to support Bailey House and its residents on their journey back home.”
Hansgrohe's $5,000 gift to the Bailey-Holt House Emergency Fund provides three months of stable housing for a homeless family living with HIV/AIDS. With a new year on the horizon, Hansgrohe hopes that Bailey House and all those affected by the storm will continue to rebuild and recover.
