Hurricane Sandy was a hurricane that devastated portions of the Caribbean and the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States during late October. Aerospace Testing Alliance (ATA) recently offered employees a chance to help victims of Super Storm Sandy. Employees donated vacation hours and ATA turned it into cash for the victims along the upper east coast. The employees gave a check for $14,695.36 to American Red Cross CEO Mike Cowles. Damage in the US is estimated at over $63 billion and 131 people lost their lives.
