GM Offers Financial Support for American Red Cross

The General Motors Foundation has offered financial support for the American Red Cross in order to allow the organization to offer supplies and relief services to communities affected by the Tennessee and Kentucky floods.

The Red Cross sends volunteers and supplies to disaster sites, offering nutritional and emotional support to disaster victims as well as proving emergency services.

Recent flash floods have caused incredible damage and heartache for the people in Tennessee and Kentucky,” said John Montford, GM Foundation chairman. “GM Foundation is working with the American Red Cross to help bring quick relief to those who were impacted by these tragic floods.

GM is involved in the Annual Disaster Giving Program, which debuted in 1997 and has seen its members pledge donations to the Red Cross in advance of major disasters to ensure an immediate response will meet the needs of those affected by all kinds of disasters.

Thanks to the generosity of our Annual Disaster Giving Program members, the Red Cross is able to mobilize supplies and staff to provide help to people and communities in need,” said Neal Litvack, chief development officer at the American Red Cross. “These contributions, along with the support of the American public, are critical during floods and similar disasters because they enable the Red Cross to rush immediate relief to disaster victims before the first donation has been given.

If you wish to take part in this project you can join forces with companies who are members of the Annual Disasters Giving Program and help provide food, shelter, emotional support and other assistance to the victims of thousands of disasters across the country each year. You can do this by visiting the Red Cross website.
