Sleep medicine newcomer Lofta, which recently launched its “Complete Path” concierge-style turnkey service for people with undiagnosed sleep apnea, will be donating a portion of the company’s proceeds to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. Established by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, the fund is a 501(c)(3) public charity housed at the Greater Houston Community Foundation and its funds support those affected by the recent floods.
“Lofta is part of a personal commitment to help improve quality of life for the millions of people nationwide who suffer from sleep apnea,” says principal Jay Levitt in a release. “Our company’s mission has always been to help people feel better, so naturally, in the wake of this natural disaster we want to be able to support relief efforts in any way we can.”
For those looking for other ways to support the victims of the historic hurricane, Lofta recommends contacting the American Association of Sleep Technologists (AAST) regarding their efforts to make direct, local donations of CPAP machines, hoses, masks, and other equipment for displaced individuals. “We’re encouraged to see so many people pulling together,” says Levitt. “We are watching with the rest of the world, and want to see individuals can get the help they need.”
Those wishing to have a portion of their own CPAP purchase benefit the fund or to make a direct donation to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund can do so at Lofta’s online shop.
