Did you hear? Victoria's Secret saved the day for the National Guard (really!)
The National Guard came to the rescue of many victims of Hurricane Sandy during the past week, but they couldn't have done it without help from Victoria's Secret.
Yes, you read that correctly!
When the hurricane hit the armory of the New York Army National Guard's 69th Infantry Regiment, leaving soldiers without power, Internet or hot water, the officers reached out to Victoria's Secret. The lingerie brand had already begun the setup for its annual fashion show (which will take place at the armory in New York City on Wednesday).

Victoria's Secret provided not only heat and light to the National Guard. It also activated its T1 line, so with the help of a few routers, the soldiers were able to get back online.
Finally, Victoria's Secret provided use of its forklift to help load pallets of food into trucks from the Federal Emergency Management Agency that had been delivered to the armory so that it could be sent to shelters and distribution areas around the city
There have been countless examples of people coming together to help victims of Hurricane Sandy, but it's nice to see how quickly Victoria's Secret moved to make sure the National Guard was able to do its job.
