GM joins Tennessee and Kentucky flood relief efforts

05/10/2010, 3:35 PM BY DREW JOHNSON

Following in the footsteps of Nissan, General Motors has announced that the General Motors Foundation has teamed with the American Red Cross to provide relief to those affected by the recent floods in Tennessee and Kentucky.

Although no specific dollar figure was given, GM’s funds will help send supplies — including food — and disaster relief services to the flood-ravaged areas. GM’s former Saturn division had a production facility in Spring Hill, Tennessee, a city located about 30 miles south of Nashville.

“Recent flash floods have caused incredible damage and heartache for the people in Tennessee and Kentucky,” said John Montford, GM Foundation chairman. “GM Foundation is working with the American Red Cross to help bring quick relief to those who were impacted by these tragic floods.”

Nissan – which is headquartered in Nashville — took its relief efforts a step farther, allowing delayed payments from customers impacted by the recent floods. The Japanese automaker is also offering employee pricing to those that lost their vehicles to the floods.
