Ram Nation Aids Flooded Residents of Central Texas

Ram truck owners are converging on storm-damaged areas in Wimberley and San Marcos, Texas to deliver supplies and help residents recover from the devastating flooding that’s struck the region. The effort will be directed by the founder of First Response Team of America, Tad Agoglia.

The day will start at San Marcos Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, where Ram truck owners will load needed supplies into their pickups’ beds. Then Ram owners will proceed to flood-stricken areas and help with home site recovery and deliver food, water and cleaning materials.

Last week, Ram Truck and the FCA Foundation announced the donation of $100,000 to the First Response Team of America.

The Ram brand established a partnership with the First Response Team of America in 2012 to help communities across America respond to natural disasters. Since then, Ram – through the FCA Foundation – has donated more than $300,000 to First Response. As a result, Ram and the First Response Team of America have led similar collaborative operations in Tupelo, Miss., and Moore, Okla.

Ram Nation is a grassroots organization of people ready to help those in need. Made up of volunteers as a sort of Ram Truck owner’s club, the group carries supplies, delivers equipment, clears debris, and more. Those interested in joining can go to www.ramtrucks.com/ramnation for more information.
