Houston Mayor Pro Tem Adrian Garcia (in the bed of the truck)
and Texas State Rep. Dr. Alma Allen got into the spirit of the
relief effort and helped load the Dodge Ram pickups.
Working to make it easier to get much-needed food and supplies to Hurricane Ike victims near Houston, Texas, The Chrysler Foundation and Houston-area Dodge dealers put up their money and trucks.
The Chrysler Foundation donated $200,000 to the Houston Food Bank for food and supplies, as well as three 2008 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty pickup trucks that will be used to distribute the supplies.
We spoke with Mike Delzotti, Chief Development Officer, at the
Houston Food Bank, about the donations and how things stand in
Ike's aftermath. Just click on "listen to the podcast" below.
