2016 Mazda CX-9

Last year, Mazda expanded its support of the Annual Disaster Giving Program of the American Red Cross by increasing its monetary donations and supplying Red Cross chapters across the country with Mazda vehicles (half of which were CX-9s, and the rest of which were Mazda5s). This year, Mazda North American Operations is continuing its increased support, donating the company’s largest in-kind vehicle donation of 16 vehicles.

These donations make Mazda the only automaker to be a $1-million ADGP member.

The vehicles will be donated and delivered to Mazda dealerships across the country, specifically those near Red Cross regional chapters that are most in need of new transportation, such as the Texas Gulf Coast, Oklahoma and Arkansas, New Jersey, and South Florida.

As the Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on the generosity of donors and volunteers, Mazda hopes that this will help aid the organization’s humanitarian missions.

“Through the Mazda Drive for Good program, Mazda has the ability to work with strong non-profit partners throughout the United States—and the American Red Cross continues to provide an incredible partnership sharing similar values as ours,” said Robert Davis, senior vice president of U.S. operations at MNAO. “Partnerships such as these are important to the very being of who Mazda is as an organization.”

Donations will take place over the next few weeks.
