Last month the Mitsubishi Motors USA Foundation announced that it would donate $30,000 to Red Cross of the Heartland, the American Red Cross branch located in Bloomington, Illinois. The Mitsubishi donation to Red Cross of the Heartland will go in part to the Red Cross Home Fires campaign.
The donation was made in partnership with O’Brien Mitsubishi, a Mitsubishi dealership in Normal, Illinois, and was presented to Red Cross officials in a ceremony that took place at the dealership in early April. This is another effort from Mitsubishi to help give back to Normal, IL, where it recently closed its Mitsubishi plant.
The Red Cross Home Fires campaign is dedicated to serving the local community by installing smoke alarms in the homes of at-risk groups like single parents and those of low socioeconomic status in order to lower the rate of injury and loss of life from home fires in these groups.
Mitsubishi has a strong history with the Red Cross, including its support of the Red Cross of the Philippines in 2015, when Mitsubishi dealers came together to donate 7.3 million Philippine pesos to the organization.
