Ram Nation Harvests Corn In Michigan For Needy Families
Volunteer Corps Inspired By Aftermath of 2012 Tornado
There are few vehicles more versatile than a pickup truck. So when disaster strikes, most of the first responders, either professionals or volunteers, come in a truck. That’s what happened in 2012 in the aftermath of a tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri. Ram truck owners pulled together to offer assistance to first responders and disaster recovery crews, and sparked a movement that grew into today’s “Ram Nation” volunteer corps.
The basic concept of Ram Nation is Ram truck owners interested in helping out their communities in times of need. The Ram brand has donated $100,000 to the First Response Team of America (FRTOA) for assistance after floods devastated the Texas communities of Wimberley and San Marcos. Ram has also donated 2500, 3500, and 5500-series trucks to FRTOA, and a total of $300,000 in cash aid for the organization.
In the video below, Ram Nation comes out to help out Forgotten Harvest, an organization in southeast Michigan dedicated to providing food for needy families. From the amount of corn harvested on this outing, the organization expects to be able to serve more than 30,000 meals.
