Due to Hurricane Irma and its direct hit on Naples and Southwest Florida, Pyure Brands LLC headquartered in Naples, FL did not attend Natural Products Expo East. Despite the storm, Pyure Brands remains operational and open for business. However, rather than attending the show the team will remain in the area to help those in need and rebuild its community.
As a part of their efforts, Pyure will be donating $5000 to the Harry Chapin Food Bank. The Harry Chapin Food Bank, an affiliate of Feeding America and a United Way partner agency, is the leading hunger-relief organization in Southwest Florida.
The organization has been setting up mobile pantry distributions throughout the devastated parts of the region. Just yesterday they fed over 700 families in Lehigh Acres, one of the hardest hit areas, and over 300 families in Immokalee, the poorest area of Collier County. These families stood on line for over 2 hours in 100 degree heat to get food. Harry Chapin is trying to set up 6 mobile pantries a day over the next few weeks. However, much more supplies are needed.
“The food bank is in desperate need of protein bars, granola bars, water, ice, and any other non-perishable items,” said Benjamin Fleischer, Founder and CEO of Pyure Brands LLC. “Harry Chapin Food Bank needs supplies to help thousands of people.”
Pyure would appreciate any support the Natural Product Industry community would lend to provide for these families that have been without water, food, gas, and electricity for days.
“We are unaware of how long these conditions will last, but the impact will be lingering for weeks to come,” said Fleischer.
If your brand would like to find out the best way to help those impacted by Hurricane Irma, please contact Melisa Tropeano, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The timing of the storm is unfortunate as Pyure is very excited to share their new innovative products with the industry. Mr. Fleischer will be attending the NPEE and is available for meetings to discuss the brands new business developments. To set up a meeting please contact him directly at 347.573.2796.
Pyure Brands’ warehouses are safely located in California, Illinois, and New Jersey. Pyure Brands will continue to ship to all retail and commercial customers during the recovery period with no disruptions. Customer service and other business functions will be executed remotely.
Hurricane Irma was disastrous for the Southwest Florida area. The recovery will be challenging, but not insurmountable. Pyure Brands is fortunate to have wonderful customers and amazing consumers and is very appreciative of all their support.
