NJ CAR Charitable Foundation Pledges $10,000—Urges New Jersey
Dealers To Donate To The NADA Foundation Emergency Relief Fund
The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Foundation has mobilized its Emergency Relief Fund to assist dealership employees in Texas who have been impacted by personal property damage caused by Hurricane Harvey and the historic flooding. The NJ CAR Charitable Foundation has responded with a $10,000 contribution on behalf of New Jersey new car dealers.
NADA estimates 30,000-35,000 dealership employees in the Houston area alone may be affected by the storm and its aftermath. Hundreds of dealerships were forced to close and it remains unclear how long some of them will be shuttered. Reports say anywhere from 300,000 to 500,000 homes have been flooded throughout southeastern Texas as the week-long storm inundated the area with unprecedented amounts of rain. Widespread damage and flooding extends from the coastal cities up to Houston.
NJ CAR encourages all New Jersey dealers to join with their colleagues across the country to assist the tens of thousands of dealership employees that will need help recovering from the devastation.
