JUNO BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 7, 2005) — The Independent Tire Dealers Group (ITDG) and Fausak Tires & Service of Mobile, Ala., are establishing a Hurricane Katrina relief fund to help families in the Mobile area with the recovery process.
Chris and Chip Fausak, owners of Fausak Tire, and their families escaped injury, but few in the area have escaped property damage, according to the ITDG.
“We have been a part of this community since 1962 when our father opened his first tire store,” the Fausaks said in a joint statement. “This is our opportunity to give back to those that have supported us over the many years.”
ITDG members who wish to donate can fill out a form or send a check made out to ITDG L.L.C., noting in the memo section “Katrina Relief Fund.” All proceeds will be forwarded to Fausak Tires, which will act as administrator and distribute the funds to the local American Red Cross chapter.
For more information, call ITDG at (561) 630-8737 or Fausak Tires at (251) 661-8671, or visit their Web sites at www.independent-tire.net and www.fausaktire.com.
