One of our HDA companies, Midwest Wheel, has a branch in Cedar Rapids. A few of their people lost their homes in the recent flood. We all remember how our friends in the industry reached out to us in our many hurricanes. The company is sending $1,500 in the name of our employees to help out the three people who lost everything. Please look at the letter and see if you can send any of the things they are asking for. If you want to make a contribution, please direct it to the address shown on the letter. Total Truck Parts, Inc. will pay for any UPS charges for any supplies that are sent.

A few weeks ago, we told you that one of our HDA partner companies located in Iowa had some of their people lose their houses in the floods. In addition to the company making a financial donation in the name of all of our employees, donations of money and clothing was also sent by individual branches, to help these people get back on their feet. Here is a copy of their thank you note.
