NADA seeks donations for Baton Rouge dealers and their families
The National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation (NADCF) seeks to raise $2 million for franchised dealership families displaced by the severe flooding in Baton Rouge, LA.
NADA President Peter Welch and NADCF Chairman Annette Sykora traveled to Baton Rouge after the floods to meet with dealers and dealership employees to assess the need for financial assistance. Initial estimates indicate that more than 1,200 dealership families from 60 dealerships have been flooded out of their homes and desperately require financial assistance.
The need for financial assistance will be significant and will last for months to come, Sykora said.
The Charitable Foundationês Emergency Relief Fund provides dealership families affected by natural disasters with funds up to $1,500. To date, the fund has supported more than 8,700 dealership families nationwide.
