Hisun Motors Corp., USA, based out of McKinney, Texas, has teamed up with the Guns & Hoses Foundation of North Texas to make available for donation more than 250 generators to assist with Hurricane Harvey rescue and relief efforts taking place in Southeast Texas. The generators represent a retail value of approximately $225,000.
Local police and fire departments from all over North Texas gathered at HISUN national headquarters to load up trucks and trailers to be delivered to Harris County and surrounding areas. After hearing of the donation on a local radio broadcast former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Tony Romo, tweeted his support to provide truckload transportation for the donated generators.
With several first responders expected to travel to Southeast Texas to assist with relief and rescue efforts, local police and fire departments will be equipped with generators to accompany their mission and assist those in need.
Ryan Daugherty, VP of Marketing and Sales stated, “To see Hurricane Harvey cause so much destruction is devastating, and watching it happen in our backyard is all the more devastating. Hisun USA is proud to partner with the Guns & Hoses Foundation of North Texas who has the outreach and support to get this equipment into the hands of those who need it most and directly onto the front line equipping first responders who are working day-in and day-out in the middle of this destruction.”
“To receive a donation of this magnitude, and at such a quick response, is heartwarming. Knowing this equipment will be used to help save lives and rebuild cities and communities goes far beyond what anyone can expect,” said Dave Swavey, Executive Director of Guns & Hoses Foundation of North Texas.
