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.
