ST. LOUIS, Mo. – While the Houston area begins to recover from Hurricane Harvey, Florida is now assessing the damage from Hurricane Irma. As the number of people in need of assistance continues to rise, the Equipment Dealers Foundation (EDF) is continuing to collect donations for its Disaster Relief Fund.

The Disaster Relief Fund helps offset the financial demands of dealers and their employees who are affected by natural disasters.  Grant money can be used for temporary housing, food, water and other necessities.

“It’s almost unbelievable that just weeks after Harvey, another devastating hurricane makes landfall in the U.S.,” says Joe Dykes, VP of Industry Relations for the Equipment Dealers Association (EDA). ”Since Hurricane Harvey we have received several Disaster Relief Applications daily and we expect a similar response from those affected by Irma in Florida. We need the support of the ag community to make sure we have enough funds to help the victims of these hurricanes.”

Please consider making a donation to EDF today. All funds raised will go directly to assist equipment dealers and their employees. Donations can be made using this pledge card.

Checks should be made out to Equipment Dealers Foundation and mailed to:

Equipment Dealers Foundation

165 N. Meramec Ave. Suite 430 

St. Louis, MO 63105

If you prefer to donate using a credit card, please call EDA’s office at 636.349.5000
