Dana joins tsunami relief effort

| 1/17/2005

Dana Corp. has joined other trucking industry players in contributing money to help victims of the December tsunami in the Indian Ocean.

Toledo, OH-based Dana – a maker of parts such as axels, drive shafts and brakes for cars and trucks – announced Jan. 13 that it had given $100,000 to Red Cross International Response Fund for relief efforts.

Dana said it would also match donations by employees and retirees through Jan. 31 if those donations were made to registered charitable organizations.

Dana operates five facilities in India and three facilities located in Indonesia and Thailand. None of those were affected by the massive earthquake-spawned wave that killed more than 175,000 people throughout the region.
