Technites Unite

Philly Bellino '73, was the owner/operator of Gibralter Transmissions located at 2018 Hylan Boulevard in Staten Island NY.  That is until Hurricane Sandy sent an 8 foot wall of water through his doors destroying everything in it's path.  Phil and his workers lost all their tools, electronic equipment, new computer system (just installed 2 weeks prior),files, etc., etc. Phil has cars up on lifts that he can't even get to because the water has fried the lift motors.He has 15 or more repaired cars (not yet paid for) in his yard that were submerged in water and bunched together because of the raging water.   Phil needs to rebuild everything, but his biggest concern is for his employees who depend on Phil and his business for their livelyhood.  Because he is a commercial business, he was told that his insurance won't cover his or his workers tools.  FEMA hasn't offered any aid except for handing him an application for an SBA loan, but the money wouldn't be available for 4 - 6 weeks or more, in which time he would be out of business. Please help me help one of our Tech brothers to get on his feet and keep his business from going under.
