Sleep therapy company Lofta to support victims of Hurricane Harvey
Lofta joins widespread efforts to provide assistance to those in need.
Lofta, the San Diego-based company, announced today its intention to donate a portion of the company’s proceeds to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund to support those affected by the recent floods. Established by Houston mayor, Sylvester Turner, the fund is a 501(c)(3) public charity housed at the Greater Houston Community Foundation.
“Lofta is part of a personal commitment to help improve quality of life for the millions of people nationwide who suffer from sleep apnea,” explains principal Jay Levitt. “Our company’s mission has always been to help people feel better, so naturally, in the wake of this natural disaster we want to be able to support relief efforts in any way we can.”
It is estimated that one in five adults in the US have sleep apnea, and with so many people out of their homes, the sleep community is rallying together. For those looking for other ways to support the victims of the historic hurricane, Lofta recommends contacting the American Association of Sleep Technologists (AAST) regarding their efforts to make direct, local donations of CPAP machines, hoses, masks and other equipment for displaced individuals.
“We’re encouraged to see so many people pulling together,” says Levitt. “We are watching with the rest of the world, and want to see individuals can get the help they need.”
Those wishing to have a portion of their own CPAP purchase benefit the fund, or to make a direct donation to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund can do so at Lofta’s online shop: lofta.com.
