GM Foundation and Chevrolet donate to 'Help 4 Oklahoma'

The General Motors Foundation is pledging $50,000, and Chevrolet is donating a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup to Forgotten Harvest to assist with the organisation's 'Help 4 Oklahoma' campaign to get supplies to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and help
those impacted by devastating tornadoes.

"The GM Foundation's $50,000 donation to Forgotten Harvest for 'Help 4 Oklahoma' is just the first step in our support for those impacted by the tornadoes," said Selim Bingol, GM's Global Vice-President of Communications and Public Policy and the chairman of the GM Foundation. "Our employees want to help and will volunteer locally at Forgotten Harvest, and we will engage our plants and other facilities across the US to collect food to help this effort."

To implement 'Help 4 Oklahoma', Forgotten Harvest is partnering with the GM Foundation, Chevrolet, Art Van, WDIV-TV 4, WJR AM 760 and The Detroit Media Partnership. 

"We will be collecting shelf-stable foods, and medical and hygiene products for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma," said Susan Goodell, CEO of Forgotten Harvest. "Vehicles will be instrumental in the implementation of this effort and we thank Chevrolet for this generous donation."

"Chevrolet continues its support of local organizations and disaster relief efforts with the donation of a Chevrolet Silverado to Forgotten Harvest. GM and the GM Foundation will support 'Help 4 Oklahoma' with the full breadth of our operations," said Mark Reuss, GM North America President, Vice-Chair of the GM Foundation.
