BALTIMORE - Domino Sugar is helping out families impacted by Superstorm Sandy .
On Monday morning they partnered with the Red Cross to send 30,000 pounds of assorted Domino’s products to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, which will help distribute them to people impacted by the storm.
The products include sugar and drink mixes.
"Hurricane Sandy really brought home to us the need in the New York City area for help," said refinery manager Stewart J. FitzGibbon.
Domino is not immune to suffering from Sandy. The Domino Sugar refinery on the Hudson River in Yonkers, New York, was damaged by Superstorm Sandy , and was closed for 13 days.
FitzGibbon said he was proud of the work by employees in Yonkers and Baltimore to get the plant back up and running. He said now, the company can focus on helping the community recover.
"Our company has a long history of community involvement," FitzGibbon said.
Domino employees loaded the trucks at the Inner Harbor refinery. The trucks started leaving at 11 a.m.
FitzGibbon said the 30,000-pound sugar donation will be followed by a financial donation to the American Red Cross.
