NADA assembles emergency relief fund for dealerships

The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) assembled its Emergency Relief Fund to help dealership employees in Texas deal with the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey. Personal property damage and flooding are just a few of the issues people are dealing with in wake of the destructive hurricane.

“We are struggling with the evacuation right now,” said Wyatt Wainwright, president of the Houston Automobile Dealers Association. The group represents 175 dealerships in the metro Houston area.

Wainwright is a resident of Sugar Land, Texas, which is southwest of Houston. He received orders to leave his home in the middle of the night.

“There are large scale mandatory and voluntary evacuations going on right now. We don’t know where we can go to escape. I don’t know how I could drive three miles right now without getting blocked,” he said.

Dealership employees affected by the flooding as a result of the hurricane can apply for financial assistance, according to NADA’s news release.

The organization is also calling on dealers and dealer association groups to help with the cause by donating online to its Emergency Relief Fund.
