PORT WASHINGTON, NY—WAC Lighting, based here, has teamed up with local organizations in the New York metropolitan area to help victims of Storm Sandy. The company has offered thousands of lighting fixtures as assistance to qualified 501c(3) charities that are helping to rebuild homes.
In addition, the company has organized a grassroots campaign encouraging those in the industry to join in. WAC employees are donating gifts to Toys for Tots, a program that collects new, unwrapped toys for underprivileged children. Employees are also delivering food, blankets and household items to areas in need, particularly on Long Island.
The most recent NYU Conference, earlier this month proved, once and for all, that the lodging industry has finally turned the corner and happy days are, indeed, here again. While the economists and pundits all provided plenty of anecdotal evidence to bear that out in terms of supply and demand ratios, RevPAR projections, asset values and all the other metrics, that’s not what has me convinced.
