The Chrysler Foundation Helps Disaster Victims
The Chrysler Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Chrysler Group LLC, today announced a donation of $50,000 to aid families displaced from their homes as a result of the large number of recent natural disasters hitting many states across the country. The donation will support AmeriCares U.S. Disaster Relief Fund, which provides medical aid, bottled water, hygiene products and relief supplies to survivors of tornadoes, hurricanes and other disasters here at home.
“The enormity of the devastation to communities throughout the South and America’s heartland is heartbreaking,” said Jody Trapasso, President – The Chrysler Foundation. “AmeriCares is already on the ground helping the many people impacted by the floods and tornadoes and the Foundation donation offers a means to expand their efforts.”
