Penske donates $1M in trucks to Haiti

Feb 8, 2010

Penske Corp. and its family of companies announced it has donated more than $1 million worth of diesel-powered flatbed trucks to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.

“I’m pleased the Penske Corp. has stepped up to donate more than $1 million worth of trucks, which will be instrumental in mobilizing food and lifesaving supplies in Haiti,” former President Bill Clinton said. “Their generous contribution is an example of what the private sector can do to help Haiti rebuild and recover from the massive earthquake, and I’m grateful for their leadership.”

“The catastrophe that has struck Haiti is almost unimaginable,” said Roger Penske, chairman of Penske Corp… “These trucks will assist in the humanitarian relief efforts in Haiti by facilitating the distribution of critical supplies that will help ease the suffering of the Haitian people.”
