Sept. 13, 2005

Continental Tire North America Inc. (CTNA) is donating $50,000 to Transitional Assistance to Survivors of Katrina, a fund that has been set up to provide hurricane victims with rent, utilities and other essentials.

In addition, CTNA is working with government officials in its hometown of Charlotte, N.C., to help Gulf Coast evacuees who have come to the city and surrounding areas.

"I am very pleased that we are able to contribute a small piece to what is a monumental effort by so many people," says CTNA CEO Alan Hippe.
