New York City Company Offers Free Email Service to Nonprofits Affected by Hurricane Sandy
NEW YORK CITY, November 3, 2012 – Sinu, a Tribeca-based IT management company, has partnered with Intermedia, a global leader in cloud services and the world’s largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, to offer free, hosted email messaging for nonprofit organizations in New York and New Jersey who are without email as a result of the storm.
“We realize there are many nonprofits in the area trying to help those affected by the storm, but they are with limited or no email communications due to lack of power or server issues,” said Sinu COO, John Christie. “We wanted to do what we could to help them stay connected to their constituents and volunteers.”
"Communications at times like this are vital to recovery," says Michael Gold, president, Intermedia. "We want to do what we can to help the non-profits in New York and New Jersey stay connected while they work to support the community."
This service is intended as a stop-gap measure to get email flowing again from nonprofit organizations who have suffered damage from power or connectivity loss to premise-based mail systems. Sinu and Intermedia are donating the service for up to 30 days to qualified nonprofits, so there are no fees; there are also no commitments for the nonprofits to continue. More details can be found at www.sinu.com/relief.
