Harley Davidson To Donate Motorcycles
For Haiti Relief Efforts
8th February 2010
Harley-Davidson today announced it will
donate 28 new Buell and Harley-Davidson motorcycles
to assist with earthquake disaster relief and stabilization
efforts in Haiti. The motorcycles are being shipped
from Motor Company facilities to the Dominican Republic,
where Harley-Davidson dealership organization MagnaMotors
will facilitate direct delivery to the United Nations
Stabilization Mission in Haiti.
“Our thoughts are with all of those affected
by this devastating disaster in Haiti,” said
Rod Copes, Sr. Vice President of International Sales,
Marketing and Business Development for Harley-Davidson.
“As the relief and stabilization efforts continue,
motorcycles can often offer a higher degree of maneuverability
and access than other types of vehicles.”
The motorcycles will remain in Haiti as a permanent
donation to the government.
