Among those seeking to contribute was Island Parker Joe Pontecorvo. “I thought, what can I bring to the table to lend a hand,” he said, and approached Chief Executive Officer David Shieren and Marketing Manager Tara Bono of Sunpower by Empower Solar in Island Park to see if they would be willing to help.
Looking to contribute as well, the business donated 20 solar-powered USB battery chargers for Brodsky to deliver to her village this December.
“We were here in Island Park when Sandy hit,” Bono said. “People were sending us supplies, so when we were asked to help we were more than happy to pay it forward.”
