Tornado season is upon us and the unfortunate and catastrophic events of the past few days in Oklahoma, Texas and other areas serve as a reminder that disaster can strike at anytime, anywhere.  History has also shown that these storms and natural disasters impact thousands of households and businesses including those of NAEDA members and their employees.

NAEDA’s Equipment Dealers Foundation Disaster Relief Fund helps the employees of NAEDA dealer members who have been affected by natural disasters with emergency funds to help bridge the gap financially for the employees and families until insurance or other payments come in.  When faced with a disaster, the EDF has been able to step in and help.  Thanks to the generous support of dealers, manufacturers, suppliers and affiliated associations, EDF has assisted more than 130 families with more than $200,000 in direct disaster grants to employees of NAEDA members.

We have already received applications and provided financial assistance to dealership employees as a result of the recent tornados in Texas and likely will see more requests from the recent Oklahoma disasters.  Please consider a generous donation to the NAEDA Equipment Dealers Foundation.  Donations can be made on-line on the EDF website at: https://www.naeda.com/SupportEDF/EDFFoundationOnlinePayment.aspx Read More...
