After a wave of tornadoes devastated Boone, DeKalb, Lee, Ogle, and Winnebego counties, the FCA Foundation has stepped up and donated $25,000 to the United Way of Rock River Valley.
Natural disasters that hit so close to home are never expected, and it’s heartwarming to have major companies like FCA pitch in to help out. The generous donation will go directly into the Northern Illinois Disaster Relief Fund in order to help families that were affected by the tornadoes by providing temporary house.
Dominic Ventral, Plant Manager of the Belvedere Assembly Plant in Boone County said, “We recognize that natural disasters can have overwhelming social and economic impact on both individuals and communities. We hope by joining forces with our friends and neighbors we can help families get back on their feet and into their homes quickly.”
