In the wake of the Hurricane Sandy’s impact on the east coast, Chevrolet has donated 50 Silverado full-size pickup trucks and Express Cargo vans to the American Red Cross for use in relief and recovery efforts. Each vehicle will be supported by 300 OnStar Hands-Free Calling minutes and three months of its Directions and Connections plans.
On top of the vehicle donations, the GM Foundation donated $250,000 to the Red Cross Disaster Responder Program, which enables the agency to be ready to provide immediate disaster relief anywhere in the country.
“It is during disasters like this that we all need to pull together as a country, and Chevrolet has a role in that,” said General Motors Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson.
The American Red Cross of Central Texas has already sent two volunteers to aid in the relief, but if you would like to help out, you can visit www.redcross.org, call 1-800-RED-CROSS, or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
