Several areas across the country have been hit hard in recent weeks by tornadoes. The area that took the worst tornado blow was Moore, Oklahoma. The community located just outside of Oklahoma City was ravaged by a tornado with winds up to 200 MPH. According to the National Weather Service, that is actually a new record. The amount of damage and lives lost is overwhelming and certainly devastating.
Friends, family, neighbors, volunteers, and organizations, like General Motors, are coming together to lend a helping hand to the people of Moore. The importance of the donating time, money, food, and supplies cannot be overstated. GM is stepping up to the plate as the General Motors Foundation is donating, $50,000 to Forgotten Harvest. This a non-profit organization whose recent initiative, Help 4 Oklahoma, is helping to provide food for the people of Oklahoma who are in need.
Chevrolet is also donating a new 2013 Chevy Silverado to help gather and transport food and assist with the relief and recovery efforts.
At Clements Chevrolet, our hearts continue to go out to those recovering from the recent tornados. We’re glad to be a part of the General Motors and Chevrolet family and are proud of their donations to this cause.
