Nu-Lite Electrical Wholesalers, headquartered in Harahan, La., has raised over $34,000 to help this past years’ Louisiana flood victims. More than 55,000 homes flooded in August and the majority of these families did not have flood insurance. It was an honor for Nu-Lite, its vendors and customers, to be able to help out three very deserving families in Hammond, La. who lost everything.
Eleven years ago, many of Nu-Lite’s employees and customers were affected by Hurricane Katrina. They were helped out by the generosity of strangers. This fall, Nu-Lite and its customers were able to return the favor through Nu-Lite’s “Helping Our Own” charity promotion. Just before Christmas, Jennifer Gray (Marketing Coordinator) along with Gary Corales (Owner) and Joe Impastato (General Manager) presented each of the 3 families with a check for $11,514.
For the past six years, Nu-Lite has selected a local charity or group to benefit from their annual fall charity promotion. In those six years, Nu-Lite has been able to donate over $169,000 with the help of metro New Orleans electricians and its supporting vendors. Our customer base loves to help support our local community.
The vendors who contributed to this years’ charity were Encore Wire, Philips, Western Tube and Conduit, Leviton, Square D by Schneider Electric, Burndy, Thomas & Betts, Ideal Industries, Eaton/Cooper Lighting/B-Line/Crouse-Hinds and Bridgeport. Without the support from these vendors, Nu-Lite’s annual charity fundraising would not be possible.
Nu-Lite Electrical Wholesalers is a local family owned Electrical Distributor headquartered in Harahan, La. and five branches in the surrounding New Orleans metropolitan area. Nu-Lite Electrical Wholesalers opened its doors for business in April, 1950, in downtown New Orleans. Their 66 years of success is a result of their dedicated employees and our valued customers.
