Doosan Bobcat North America is donating more than $325,000 worth of Bobcat equipment and Doosan Portable Power light towers and generators to help with Hurricanes Harvey and Irma relief efforts.
The company is also providing financial assistance to affected dealership employees and their families in the affected areas. Employees plan to direct annual charitable drives to assist those impacted by the hurricanes.
Prior to Hurricane Harvey’s landfall in Texas, Doosan Bobcat expedited equipment and attachment deliveries to areas that would be impacted in an effort to be prepared for clean-up efforts. It also took steps to expedite equipment deliveries to southern Florida ahead of Hurricane Irma.
“Doosan Bobcat has been on the scene helping communities recover from natural disasters for more than 50 years,” said Rich Goldsbury, president of Doosan Bobcat North America, in a press release. “We have a ready-response program that ensures Bobcat equipment and other assets are readily available to help out local communities, our dealerships, and their employees. Our support and prayers go out to those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.”
