As you might have read a few days ago, ASI Computer is based in Cedar Falls, Iowa, one of the areas struck by horrible flooding.
Fortunately, our offices there have not been impacted by flooding.
We are offering use of our offices to any ASI distributor, supplier or decorator in the Cedar Falls area whose own office or home office has been flooded and is unavailable for use. We have 12 cubicles and a conference room available, but no warehouse space.
There will be no fee for the space, and we will accommodate as many people as possible — for a few hours, a day, or as long as a month — to help get businesses going again among flood victims in the ASI distributor-supplier-decorator network.
In addition, the Cohn Family and ASI have made a $25,000 cash contribution to the American Red Cross that’s earmarked for flood relief services. The Cohn Family and ASI will make a second $20,000 donation when total industry contributions reach $100,000. Visit http://american.redcross.org/ and designate your gift to the Disaster Relief Fund. Any amount will help and is greatly appreciated, as officials said recently that this fund is empty and needs to be replenished. To ensure your gift is counted by ASI, fax a copy of your donation receipt to Mark Quinn, chief financial officer, at 215-953-3908. Or mail it to Mark at Advertising Specialty Institute, 4800 Street Road, Trevose, PA 19053.
To check space availability at our Cedar Falls office, please call David Wirth, president of ASI Computer, at 319-266-7688, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org and copy me at email@example.com.
Please forward this email to ASI members in Iowa who might be using a personal email address during this difficult period.
