Penske Corporation and its family of companies announced that it has donated more than $1 million worth of diesel-powered flatbed trucks to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund (CBHF).
“I’m pleased the Penske Corp has stepped up to donate more than $1 million worth of trucks, which will be instrumental in mobilizing food and lifesaving supplies in Haiti,” former President Bill Clinton said. “Their generous contribution is an example of what the private sector can do to help Haiti rebuild and recover from the massive earthquake, and I’m grateful for their leadership.”
“The catastrophe that has struck Haiti is almost unimaginable,” said Roger Penske, chairman of Penske Corp. “These trucks will assist in the humanitarian relief efforts in Haiti by facilitating the distribution of critical supplies that will help ease the suffering of the Haitian people.”
The CBHF is working with and supporting the efforts of 501(c)(3) non-governmental and non-profit organizations, and Clinton and former President George W Bush oversee the CBHF through their respective non-profit organizations, the William J Clinton Foundation and Communities Foundation of Texas. One hundred percent of donations made to these foundations go directly to relief efforts.
