Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano commended the owners of New York Ravioli & Pasta Company of New Hyde Park for donating a portion of all proceeds generated throughout May to the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund (NHRF). Six months after Superstorm Sandy barreled through local neighborhoods, Nassau residents are still struggling to rebuild their homes and lives.
“I am so grateful to New York Ravioli & Pasta Company for their generous offer to provide a percentage of their sales to Nassau’s Hurricane
Recovery Fund,” said County Executive Mangano. “Thanks to local businesses, the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund has been able to provide some form of support to those who have been unable to overcome the financial hurdles associated with the storm and the recovery.”
Coordinating efforts with their 20th Anniversary, the owners of the company will donate 20 percent of their retail store sales every Monday through Thursday, throughout May, to benefit Hurricane victims. In addition, the company will reward the 20th store customer each Friday in May with a $25 gift certificate. Customers will also be offered 20 deals for 20 days through discount offers on the company’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
“Dave and I are Long Island natives and we understand the tremendous impact that Hurricane Sandy continues to still have on Long Island,” said Paul Moncada, national sales manager of New York Ravioli & Pasta Company. “The people of Long Island have been very supportive of us for the past 20 years and this is a way for us to support them.”
