Camping World Disaster Relief Program Nets $15,000 Donation

BOWLING GREEN, Ky., - National Retailer Camping World has once again tapped into the generosity of RVers from across the country to help disaster victims. From November 22 to January 6, all retail stores participated in the Holiday Disaster Relief program by displaying a Giving Tree. The in-store donations were then matched dollar for dollar by Camping World. The result is a check for $15,710 on its way to the American Red Cross, earmarked for Disaster Relief.

"What began as a program to boost the American Red Cross Disaster Relief fund in general, especially in light of the many disastrous hurricanes in the US in 2004, soon took on a sense of urgency. In the wake of the Tsunami disaster and resulting relief effort, it is fortunate that our customer and corporate donations will potentially go to support these efforts," said Mark Boggess, president of Camping World. "We set up this program to make it easy and affordable for everyone to lend a hand and get disaster victims back on their feet again."

The American Red Cross responds to more than 67,000 disasters every year, dealing with fires, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, and more. The Disaster Relief Fund is made up entirely of donations from the public. It provides many areas of assistance, including food, clothing and shelter for disaster victims, medical supplies, counseling, meals for emergency workers, and information hotlines to help people locate family members affected by a disaster. For more information, visit redcross.org.

Camping World has 41 retail locations and 2 collision repair centers. The nationwide retailer offers 8,000 products geared toward the RVing community through its retail stores, extensive mail-order catalog and online shopping network. Camping World repair and service centers staff trained professionals adept at installing or repairing any product purchased at Camping World stores such as accessories, appliances and other equipment for RVs or towed vehicles.
