Navistar donated a used step van valued at $20,000 to the Hale Empowerment and Revitalization Organization in Hale County, Alabama, to assist rebuilding efforts in the wake of the devastating tornadoes.


Alan Stegich, national service director for Navistar's Workhorse custom products business unit, and Andrea Clay, Workhorse legal and consumer affairs manager, recently presented the keys to HERO Executive Director Pam Dorr.



"The tornadoes here were quite damaging for our small area," said Dorr. "We were not sure how to rebuild with this kind of devastation, but it is clear with this donation that we can begin getting the process moving along."


The donation of the vehicle is in addition to the $50,000 Navistar provided to the Governor's Emergency Relief Fund, established by Alabama Governor Robert Bentley to help Alabama residents with unmet recovery needs. Donations to this fund will be used to relieve suffering caused by the spring storms.

The fund, which is administered by the United Ways of Alabama, will operate on an ongoing basis to help Alabama residents who have exhausted all other avenues of disaster relief, such as FEMA, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army and any other disaster relief programs.



In addition, employees at Navistar's Melrose Park engine plant secured generators to assist employees at Navistar's Huntsville engine plant when they were without power.
