NEW YORK, NY, September 13, 2013 — In the spirit of volunteerism and lending a helping hand, ePromos Promotional Products, Inc., a leading online distributor of promotional products, stepped up with a donation of 500 promotional t-shirts and a team of volunteers for New York Says Thank You Foundation’s (NYSTY) annual 9/11 anniversary event, “The Big Build.”
The organization, a 100% volunteer-based nonprofit, helps rebuild communities around the country that have been impacted by disaster. Its mission is to commemorate the love and support given to New Yorkers by Americans all across the country in the days, weeks and months following 9/11.
“We’re proud to donate t-shirts and be part of the activities of New York Says Thank You Foundation,” says Jason Robbins, ePromos CEO. “The organization has made such a tremendous impact on the lives of so many Americans. It was inspiring for ePromos team members to make a positive impact in the local community, and we hope that the promotional t-shirts will continue to spread awareness about such a worthy cause.”
As a sponsor for NYSTY, ePromos donated four versions of custom logo t-shirts for the event in Long Beach, New York: blue, gray, pink and yellow shirts for volunteers, safety crew, team leaders and staff.
“We couldn’t do anything without our sponsors – whether it’s ePromos helping us establish our brand with promotional t-shirts, or a company that supplies wood,” says Jeff Parness, Founder and Chair of NYSTY. “A t-shirt is powerful. It adds to the spirit of the event, and it makes everyone feel like they belong together.”
In addition to the donation of promotional t-shirts, a team of 10 ePromos employees volunteered their time to work on rebuilding the home of an NYPD member.

About New York Says Thank You Foundation
In 2003, a 5-year-old boy’s idea launched the New York Says Thank You Foundation (NYSTY) as a way to empower disaster survivors as volunteers and pay it forward for the outpouring of national support following the 9/11 attacks. Each year, NYSTY sends hundreds of volunteers from New York City and other locations across the U.S. to help disaster-impacted communities rebuild following their own natural disasters. NYSTY has grown into the nation’s largest disaster relief organization in honor of the 9/11 anniversary. NYSTY’s 2013/2014 project is the repair/rebuild of 200 first-responder homes in the New York area destroyed or damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
