NADA backs Red Cross's Japan relief campaign

March 17, 2011
The National Automobile Dealers Association is urging its 16,000 members to support the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami fund of the American Red Cross.
           
To jumpstart the campaign, the NADA Charitable Foundation pledged a $100,000 donation to the Red Cross’ special Japan fund. The Red Cross set up the fund to support disaster relief efforts in Japan after the devastating earthquake and tsunami on March 11.
           
“The magnitude of the disaster in Japan keeps growing. Relief needs are staggering,” said Stephen Wade, NADA chairman. “We’re reaching out to dealers and their employees across the country to help support the international relief efforts in Japan.”
           
Nearly 10,000 people are feared dead, following the massive 9.0 magnitude quake that rocked the Pacific Ocean and nearby Japan. More than one-half million people have been evacuated; and many others are homeless without food, water, or electricity.
           
To make an online donation, visit www.redcross.org. Or, checks can be mailed to: American Red Cross, Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief, P.O. Box 37242, Washington, DC 20013.
           
The National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation, established in 1975, is the philanthropic arm of the NADA. Funds contributed by new-car and -truck dealers and friends provide emergency relief and financial support to colleges and universities.
