New Canaan, CT and Milot, Haiti – September 7, 2010 – The Hopital Sacre Couer, located in Milot, Haiti, has issued an urgent request for assistance obtaining much needed maintenance and repair parts for its 4×4 Ambulance. In the months since the earth quake that devastated much of the Haitian Capital City of Port-au-Prince, this Ambulance has helped transport earth quake victims from a nearby heli-port to the Hospital.
Back in 2008, KARL Chevrolet helped donate this Chevrolet 4×4 Ambulance to the hospital through the CRUDEM Foundation. With help from the Rotary Club of New Canaan, Saint Aloysius Church and its parishioners, New Canaan Auto Body, and several private individuals, the shiny new Ambulance arrived in Haiti in early 2009.
Now, KARL Chevrolet is helping again. With the help of staff on the ground in Haiti, we’ve put together a list of needed parts and have begun gathering them for shipment. KARL Chevrolet will donate over half the cost, and we are inviting our customers to consider helping by adding their own donation to the cause.
For the months of September and October, we will be offering our customers the opportunity to add $10 or $20 to their payment at our service counters in both New Canaan or Old Greenwich. All donations will go toward supplying these needed parts; and any additional funds will be donated to the Hospital for other supplies. This is absolutely voluntary effort, with no requirement, and any amount will be welcome.
