Bridgestone donates $100,000 to flood relief efforts in Iowa
Bridgestone Americas Holding Inc. has donated $100,000 to American Red Cross flood relief efforts across Iowa.
The donation reflects the combined resources of three of the company's business units: the Firestone Agricultural Tire Division of Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire LLC, Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions and BFS Retail & Commercial Operations.
Firestone Ag is based in Des Moines, Iowa; Bridgestone Bandag is based in Muscatine, Iowa.
"We are always looking for opportunities to give back to the communities where we live and work," says Ken Allen, vice president of Firestone Ag. "It is rewarding to see how dramatically the quality of life can improve for families with the aid given from the Red Cross."
