Tire Group International partnered with the Consulate of Ecuador in Miami to collect supplies to help those affected by the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that devastated Ecuador on April 16.
TGI is inviting customers, colleagues, vendors and corporate friends to donate nonperishable foods, clothing in good condition, bottled water and sports drinks, mattresses, tents, awnings and hygiene supplies to the Consulate of Ecuador in Miami, which will send the supplies to Ecuador.
“The situation in Ecuador is especially desperate right now,” said Joaquin Gonzalez Jr., president of
TGI. “With such close ties to the Ecuadorian community, the TGI Team immediately banded together to begin collecting donations. Since Monday (April 18), the TGI Family has donated truck loads of bedding sheets, clothing for children to adults, baby diapers, first aid kits, rubbing alcohol, canned goods, crackers, cookies, water, and Gatorade.”
To donate, supplies can be send to the Consulate of Ecuador in Miami: Oficinas de Provex Inc. 7061 NW 87th Ave., Miami, FL 33178.
