Harley Donates 100K for Tornado Relief

Motorcycle Charity

With all the recent devastation that occurred from the tornadoes in Missouri, Alabama and Oklahoma, Harley-Davidson has donated $100,000 to assist in the relief efforts.

The funds come from The Harley-Davidson Foundation, and were given to the American Red Cross. Harley says $50,000 of that money will go directly to Joplin, Mo., which got hit the worst. The remaining $50K will support the American Red Cross General Disaster Relief Fund.

Tonit Calaway (Harley-Davidson Vice President and President of the H-D Foundation) says: "Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this recent devastation. We are proud to make this donation and help provide relief during this unfortunate time."

The Harley-Davidson Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization that builds partnerships with charitable organizations to help support the communities where Harley-Davidson does business.
