Subaru of America, Inc. has announced that in the wake of the wildfires rampaging through the western U.S. and countless numbers still reeling from the recent hurricanes it has donated an additional $100,000 to the American Red Cross.
"At Subaru, it is part of our Love Promise to help our neighbors in times of need. We strongly believe it is our responsibility to support our communities," said Thomas J. Doll, president and COO of Subaru of America, Inc. "When we watched the devastation that has hit some of the areas, we knew we had to do more. While we know the need is great, we hope these funds will help to provide some support to those in the areas that need it most."
In addition to the lump sum donation, Subaru of America Foundation has enhanced and extended its existing matching gifts program to establish a way for Subaru of America employees to help support relief and recovery efforts. Through the program, employee donations to eligible organizations providing disaster relief will be matched on a $2/$1 basis for all relief efforts through November 30.
There are hundreds of organizations responding to disaster relief and recovery efforts and the need continues to be great. Subaru urges everyone to consider supporting the American National Red Cross at redcross.org or another disaster relief organization to help address the overwhelming need. More information on disaster relief charities can be found at sites such as CharityNavigator.org and Give.org.
