I have a Google Alert that gives me a routine update of news about our industry and so often it is relaying negative stories about towing and towers so I was delighted to see this news item about the fine folks at the Conference of Northeast Towing Associations who are gathering the troops to help bring a bit of Christmas Cheer to the people struggling in the wake of hurricane Sandy.
Our hats off and beacons on for the good members and partner associations of the Conference of Northeast Towing Associations. The entire press release is below.

CNTA ASSISTS OPERATION JERSEY SHORE SANTA
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, many families at the Jersey Shore lost their belongings and their homes.
While numerous groups and organizations are helping with the here & now needs of those who have been
displaced, Operation Santa was created to bring Christmas to these families.
The Conference of Northeast Towing Associations (CNTA) and its member states have joined forces for a
“Towers Toy Drive” to benefit victims of Super Storm Sandy. Sandy has devastated many areas along the
east coast but New Jersey has been her greatest victim affected countless families. Garden State Towing
Association of NJ (GSTA) has organized food and clothing drives and is working with state and local
organizations to help the many families left homeless in her wake. CNTA and its members are opening their
hearts and wallets to purchase new unwrapped toys and gift cards for boys or girls between the ages of
infant and sixteen.
Our convoy of trucks will make its delivery to Operation Jersey Shore Santa on Friday, December 14th. To
make a donation, please contact Mary Leigh Barbusin at 732-530-4782 or by email at email@example.com or
Cindy Martineau at Cynthia J Martineau, CNTA Secretary, 508-303-6699 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
