Maryland Business with Oklahoma Ties Partners with Wendy’s for Disaster Relief
Bobby’s Portable Restrooms to help aid victims of Oklahoma Tornado
White Marsh, MD – Tomorrow, Wednesday, May 22, 2013, 9AM-9PM, Bobby’s Portable Restrooms is partnering with Wendy’s in Joppatowne, Maryland to receive donations of personal items that will be taken directly to the tornado victims of Oklahoma. Donations will be received at 1060 Joppa Farm Rd., Joppa, MD 21085.
This is not the first time that Bob Lang, CEO of Bobby’s Portable Restrooms has come to the aid of disaster victims, but this time the effort is personal. During Hurricane Katrina, Bobby’s Portable Restrooms went on location in Louisiana as part of the disaster relief program.
Lang’s father, a former Maryland business owner and entrepreneur, lives just 30 miles north of Moore, Oklahoma, the town of 56,000 residents that was torn apart by the tornado Monday afternoon.
“Fortunately, my father is safe and unharmed,” said Bob Lang. “However there are countless victims with no home, no clothing – nothing. We’re going to load up our trailer with donations from generous Marylanders and head out there.”
Lang says they are collecting the following items (NO furniture, appliances or clothing other than what is listed):
- Dog food
- Non-perishable food items
- Baby formula
- Baby food
- Feminine products
Bobby’s Portable Restrooms, who has recently constructed Maryland’s only laundry trailer which debuted in at the Florida Governor’s Hurricane Conference, will leave Maryland Thursday, May 23, and travel to Moore, Oklahoma to help deliver the items collected.
