Enterprise to Donate $1M Annually to Red Cross

Enterprise Rent-A-Car has joined the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP), a group of corporations that provide the highest level of support to Red Cross preparedness and relief efforts.

The Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation will donate $1 million annually through ADGP, helping the Red Cross provide shelter, food and emotional support to victims of natural and man-made disasters.

“As a global company, we know being an engaged corporate citizen makes a real difference in the communities where we do business,” said Carolyn Kindle, vice president and executive director of the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation. “Our ongoing commitment through the Annual Disaster Giving Program supports the Red Cross’ ability to provide immediate support when people are in need of help.”

In addition, the foundation is donating $50,000 specifically to support relief efforts for those impacted by the earthquake in Nepal.

“The generous donations from Annual Disaster Giving Program members help the Red Cross assist disaster survivors and support volunteers who work tirelessly at the disaster scene,” said Neal Litvack, chief development officer of the Red Cross. “All money donated by the program members and by the general public is essential to our ability to fulfill the mission of the Red Cross.”
