Advance Diamond Tech
I am very grateful for this assistance during this difficult time. From all the associations I am involved with, PPAI and this fund came through the fastest.  As you can probably imagine, now is the time when it counts the most.  I also appreciate the extended membership by the PPAI and as I told you, I hope that I can contribute to this fund in the very near future.—Sam Brach

Emporium Leather/Royce Collection
Thank you very much from Royce Leather for your generosity with extraordinary expenses incurred in order to operate our business due to Hurricane Irene.  It has been quite a challenge to overcome the effects of Hurricane Irene and the recent tropical storm that hit our New Jersey warehouse and we appreciate the funds that will help us transcend that challenge.  The funds are a real testament to the kindness and humanity that characterizes PPAI members and we hope to be there for others who may endure untimely challenges and natural disasters in the future.—Kathy Bauer

Thank you so much for that check; it was very helpful.  We certainly put it to good use.  We did have to rent a truck for the whole week and then, in the following week, we had a few days where we could get away with a 12-people van.  But your thoughts and your caring were over the top.  So, from me and Emporium Leather, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your caring.  And it certainly helped lift the load.  Thank you again.—Harold Bauer

Signature Promotions
Your kind offer will be used to pay for the accounting software that I had to purchase and for the labor of the IT technician who installed it. I appreciate PPAI’s response to my situation.—Maureen Coffey
