Long Beach, NY-based Powder Pouch, LLC is rolling out Get Sandy Relief, Give Sandy Relief, a charitable program to support friends and neighbors as they work to rebuild their homes.
For every Powder Pouch order in 2013, a donation will be made to support families who are still struggling to overcome the devastation of Superstorm Sandy. Specifically, the donation will go to the Long Beach Christmas Angel, a local charity that has been helping Long Beach families for more than a decade.
Powder Pouch, which comes in a colorful, machine washable pouch features a starting supply of talc and has drawstring carrying case to eliminate the mess of powder. With a few brushes of the Powder Pouch sand easily falls away leaving skin smooth and comfortable. It can also be used for sandboxes, changing diapers, at the gym, sports bags, removing construction or lawn debris, camping, traveling, personal hygiene, and minimizing the mess of bottled powder, according to the company.
“We first created the Powder Pouch to keep our own children more comfortable when playing in the sand, but now the need for ‘Sandy Relief’ has taken on a whole new meaning,” said Mary Conway, a Long Beach native who developed Powder Pouch with her husband, Jeff. “As we’re personally regaining our post-Sandy footing, we’re utilizing Powder Pouch to help others whose needs are far greater than our own.”
