The company also teamed up with suppliers like Phokus Research, Drip-Drop, and Combat One, to send hundreds of pounds of medical and first aid supplies into the areas suffering most—everything from bandages to emergency cardiac care devices to rehydration packets and water purification tablets.

The transportation logistics required to fulfill a request for hundreds of life preservers presented an even bigger challenge.
