Daimler AG’s U.S.-based subsidiaries and Daimler Trucks North America announced its support of the population in southern U.S. affected by Hurricane Harvey by agreeing to donate $1 million.
The donation will be sent to American Red Cross and will be used for immediate disaster relief, emergency assistance, and other services needed by the victims of the hurricane.
The American Red Cross is working around the clock in Houston and other affected cities and states to help the thousands of people whose lives have been devastated. The hurricane is one of the biggest rainstorms in the history of the U.S., and has left a path of destruction and flooded areas. An estimated 30,000 people will need temporary shelter and financial assistance.
Those interested in supporting the American Red Cross’ Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts can visit www.redcross.org to make a donation or to volunteer.
