CATA joins hurricane relief efforts

September 8, 2017
As was the case during the severe Louisiana flooding in August 2016, the need by dealership employees for financial assistance is great and will last for many weeks. The NADA Foundation’s Emergency Relief Fund, which provides assistance to dealership employees after natural disasters, is soliciting tax-deductible donations to the fund at
The Chicago Automobile Trade Association’s board of directors on Sept. 5 donated $30,000 to the fund.
"Hurricane Harvey is now being called the worst flooding disaster in U.S. history, so those dealership employees in Texas need all the help they can get," said Ray Scarpelli Jr., chairman of the CATA. "The work there is just beginning, and the CATA wants to make a difference as people in Texas recover and get back on their feet in the challenging weeks and months ahead."
The NADA Foundation is also calling on dealers, dealer association groups and others to donate online to its Emergency Relief Fund, which is dedicated exclusively to providing financial assistance to dealership employees.
Personal or corporate checks can be made payable to Emergency Relief Fund and mailed to NADA Foundation, 8400 Westpark Dr., Tysons, VA 22102. 
Donations to the NADA Foundation generally are tax-deductible; contributors should consult their tax advisors for details. For more information, call the Foundation at (703) 821-7102.
