DETROIT, May 22, 2013 – Following the lead of some of its Oklahoma City dealer customers, Ally Financial will make a $10,000 donation to the American Red Cross in support of its Oklahoma tornado disaster relief efforts.
Three auto dealers in the area - Knipplemeir Chevrolet, Patriot Ford and Kelsey Buick GMC - banded together to make a donation to the charity and asked other dealers to join their effort. Ally made the donation to help Oklahoma recover and to support the call to action issued by its dealer customers.
"We support Oklahoma in its effort to rebuild and are proud to work with such a caring group of dealers in the region," said Mike Kimmel, Ally regional vice-president, whose area includes Oklahoma. "These dealers are local heroes who work tirelessly in their community throughout the year and step up their efforts even more when their community is in need."
Additionally, Ally will match contributions made by its employees nationwide to eligible nonprofit organizations helping with relief efforts.
