EDISON — Edison officials are doing their part in supporting relief efforts for the hurricane victims in the Caribbean, Florida and Texas with “Edison Eats for Relief,” a charitable initiative Mayor Thomas Lankey created in response to recent devastating hurricanes, Harvey, Irma and Maria.

Mayor Thomas Lankey said, “So many people’s homes were destroyed, their belongings lost forever, and their lives shattered that I felt compelled to have our community offer help,” Lankey said. “Edison Eats for Relief is a distinctive way for us to assist other Americans in need and at the same time, support our local businesses.”

Money raised in Edison will go to the One America Appeal Fund, established by the five former Presidents to provide hurricane relief.
