Disaster relief contributions needed after killer storm

The SMART Transportation Division is primed to assist members in their time of need when disaster strikes.

The deadly tornadoes this week in Tennessee affected a number of families and TD members may be among those whose lives have been devastated by the killer storms that claimed at least 24 lives.

The generosity of citizens around the country has risen up as people give what they can to help those affected by the disaster to reclaim their lives.

We are asking the SMART-TD family to heed the call and give what you can so that the difficult task of starting over and rebuilding can begin for any members who have been affected by the fury of the storm.

Any donations will help lessen the struggle and bring real hope and relief to SMART-TD members who are suffering after this great loss. SMART-TD will administer donations sent to the SMART TD Disaster Relief Fund.

Contributions may be sent and made payable to:
