INEDA Will Match Dealer Member Donations for Disaster Relief
The recent heavy rains and snow melt in many areas of Nebraska and Iowa are causing serious problems for communities and many equipment dealerships and their employees. The EDA Equipment Dealers Foundation has a special Disaster Relief Fund to provide financial grants to equipment dealer employees.
The fund is designed to help offset some of the financial demands faced by those affected by natural disasters such as the recent flooding. Grants from the fund may be used for food, living expenses, temporary accommodation, home repair, home replacement, permanent home construction, transportation accommodation and other approved needs. If you are in need of assistance, please fill out the Disaster Relief Application here.
EDF will continue to collect donations to replenish its Disaster Relief Fund and INEDA will match its dealer member donations made for flood relief. (All funds raised go directly to assist equipment dealers and their employees.)
Please consider a tax deductible donation to the Equipment Dealers Foundation today. Donate online here, call 636.349.5000 to pay with a credit card, or mail a check to: Equipment Dealers Foundation | 165 N. Meramec Ave. Suite 430 | St. Louis, MO 63105
The Equipment Dealers Foundation has been providing grant assistance to employees of dealerships in areas where natural disasters have wreaked havoc since 2005, following Hurricane Katrina.
