Disaster Relief Fund Activated in the Wake of Hurricane Florence
In an effort to help industry employees that have been seriously impacted by Hurricane Florence, NCADA’s Executive Committee voted yesterday to activate the NCADA Disaster Relief Fund. The Fund, which was originally started in the wake of Hurricane Fran, has provided much needed assistance to NCADA member employees during Hurricanes Fran, Floyd, and Isabella.
“Our goal is to help those dealership employees whose lives were significantly impacted last weekend. We have a long time tradition of helping one another in North Carolina and this Fund will be used to help employees and their families who suffered major flood damage as a result of the storm,” noted NCADA Chairman Tim Ilderton from Ilderton Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep in High Point.
NCADA will be working in partnership with NADA’s Emergency Relief Fund to identify and assist as many industry employees as possible. NCADA’s Disaster Relief Fund will be used to supplement funds granted to individuals by NADA. General managers are urged to make sure that all dealership employees are aware of the assistance available to them.
In addition, donations to the NCADA Disaster Relief Fund can be made to:
NCADA Charitable Foundation
P.O. Box 12167
Raleigh, NC 27605
Please indicate “NCADA Disaster Relief Fund” in the memo line.
“The biggest thing is take care of your family and take care of your employees, everything else is insured. We can fix everything else.” President Robert Glaser stated Wednesday afternoon before Hurricane Florence made landfall. NCADA has activated the Disaster Relief Fund to do just this. “100% of the funds collected will be used to assist North Carolina’s dealership employees. Thank you in advance for your most appreciated support,” commented Chairman Ilderton.
The application for the NADA Emergency Relief Fund for dealership employees can be found on pages two and three of this document.
NCADA sends our thoughts and prayers to all affected by the storm!
