MIAMI (April 25, 2016) — Tire Group International (TGI), in conjunction with the Consulate of Ecuador in Miami, is urging customers, colleagues, vendors and others to help victims of the earthquake that devastated Ecuador earlier this month.
TGI suggested that those who wish to donate send nonperishable foods, clothing in good condition, bedding, bottled water, sports drinks, mattresses, tents, hygiene supplies and other items to the consulate, which will coordinate arrangements to send the donations to those who need them.
“The situation in Ecuador is especially desperate right now,” TGI President Joaquin Gonzalez Jr. said. “With such close ties to the Ecuadorian community, the TGI team immediately banded together to begin collecting donations.”
As of April 22, TGI had donated truck loads of items, including bedding, clothing, baby diapers, food and first aid kits, among other items, he added.
Those who wish to donate can send supplies to the Consulate of Ecuador in Miami at: Oficinas de Provex Inc., 7061 NW 87th Ave., Miami, Fla. 33178.
