Frank Myers Auto Commits Funds to Haiti Relief

Frank Myers Auto Maxx is donating one hundred dollars for every car sold in the month of January to help victims of the earthquake in Haiti. The owner of Frank Myers Auto Maxx, Tracy Myers, initiated the move immediately after learning about the high magnitude earthquake in Haiti.

“The moment we saw the news, we knew we had to help,” Myers said. “This devastating earthquake killed thousands and thousands of people and conditions for survivors are nearly unbearable. Those of us not affected by this disaster need to step up – everyone in the Frank Myers Automotive Group feel it’s our duty to lead the way.”

Today Frank Myers Auto Maxx sent their first (of hopefully many) $10 donations by texting ‘Haiti’ to 90999. This money goes to the Red Cross, through an effort backed by the U.S. State Department. Funds will go to support American Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti.

A representative, who asked to remain anonymous, was thrilled to hear about the Frank Myers Auto initiative by phone this afternoon. “We’re overwhelmed by the quick response of Frank Myers Auto and their generous pledge,” she said. “Tracy has requested that the money be used to help rebuild the hospital and the orphanage in Port-au-Prince.”

In fact, Frank Myers Auto Maxx has a history of jumping in to help generate financial support for victims of natural disasters, including ongoing contributions to the Red Cross, Katrina hurricane victims in 2007 and Iowa flood victims in 2008.

The original Frank Myers Store was started more than 83 years ago by Frank Myers, the Great-Grandfather of the current owner Tracy Myers and the Grandfather of the previous owner, Franklin Myers.
