FOOTHILL RANCH, CA – Kawasaki Motors Corp. USA announced it is donating five new Mule utility vehicles to help with relief efforts following hurricanes in the Southeast United States.

“With Hurricane Irma coming right on the heels of all of the destruction from Hurricane Harvey, everyone at Kawasaki is prepared to support those most recently impacted,” said Yoshi Tamura, Kawasaki president and CEO. “We have seen how the Kawasaki Mule vehicles are assisting support teams, families, and our Dealers in repairing their homes and businesses in Texas and we will extend that assistance to those now affected in Florida and the rest of the Southeast U.S.”

Many Kawasaki dealers have immediately begun loaning Mules to local relief organizations, the OEM noted. The “Kawasaki regional office in Atlanta, GA is ready to assist our vast Dealer network,” it added.

Kawasaki also said it will continue a corporate donation-matching program for employees at all of its U.S. locations. The company will match all individual donations from $30 to $500 made to nonprofit organizations.  So far, Kawasaki said it has donated a combined total of more than $150,000 to hurricane relief efforts.
