Case Helps Katrina Relief with Equipment and Cash Donations
Case Construction Equipment is coordinating equipment and resources and sending cash donations to Mississippi and Louisiana to support ongoing relief and restoration work in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
Case dealers in the region are also pitching in, diverting new equipment from Case plants and delivering units to the areas hardest hit. Rough-terrain forklifts and loader/backhoes are an initial part of the mix.
Case is delivering eight rough-terrain forklifts to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security at Clamp Beauregard, La. Additionally, Case is donating two 580 Super M+ loader/backhoes to the local government in Plaquemines Parish, La., an area south of New Orleans hit hard by Katrina.
"Our thoughts and condolences go out to all of those who have been affected by the disaster," said Robin Killian, vice president of sales and marketing for Case Construction Equipment, North America. "We are pleased to provide equipment that can help begin to repair communities and infrastructures."
Case will continue to work closely with its dealers in the region, with the Business Roundtable through its Partnership for Disaster Relief, and with the National Association of Manufacturers to channel assistance to federal and state relief efforts supporting victims of the devastation.
In addition to supplying equipment as part of a million-dollar joint hurricane relief effort with other CNH brands, Case Construction Equipment also announced it will join the brands as they match individual employee donations to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to $250,000.
