This week, IRA Second Vice Chair Sam Sanchez and IRA President & CEO Sam Toia joined several elected officials and civic leaders to announce the City's efforts to aid Mexico and Puerto Rico in the wake of devastating natural disasters.

Sanchez urged other businesses to help fundraising efforts, noting how many of the workers the IRA represents have family in Mexico. "I love Mexico," Sanchez said in Spanish and English. "Don't forget about Puerto Rico because they're devastated right now. We are very blessed to be in this country and very fortunate. To support someone less fortunate is an obligation as a human being."
