Trillium Trading Raises Funds for Sandy Relief

NEW YORK--()--Trillium Trading, a proprietary trading firm, is assisting families in Staten Island impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

“It was a great idea and we are proud to support it.”

In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Trillium’s Chairman, a native of Heartland Village on Staten Island, co-founded the SI Sandy Relief Fund, a non-profit charity dedicated to identifying individual families in need and providing targeted donations to help get them back on their feet. The SI Sandy Relief Fund has thus far raised over $100,000 and has used that funding to provide food, shelter, and transportation to families on Staten Island who lost everything in the storm.

Inspired by their Chairman’s initiative, many of Trillium’s traders and staff visited the hardest hit areas themselves, and have contributed both their time and money -- which Trillium matched -- to the relief effort.

“Many of us have roots on Staten Island and could not believe the destruction we witnessed. People lost everything, and were being put up in hotels 50 miles from their jobs and their kids’ schools. The SI Sandy Relief Fund is cutting through the red tape and is providing the help these families actually need,” said Cary Grill, Trillium’s Director of Human Resources. “It was a great idea and we are proud to support it.”

The donations made possible by Trillium’s giving have been featured in The New York Post and on WPIX television news.
