Do-Good Auto Coalition Steps Up
April 23, 2020—The Do-Good Auto Coalition, a group of those in the automotive repair industry looking to help, launched in the last few weeks as a way to provide those who have extra cars, a way to help deliver needed supplies, whether it's food or personal protective equipment, reported The Detroit Free Press.
According to the coalition's website, "the DGAC was created to facilitate and highlight the innovative and inspiring ways that auto dealers are banding together to make a difference during the era of COVID-19." The coalition is made up of almost 100 dealers across the country.
The coalition was founded by Diana Lee, who was running a digital ad agency, Constellation.
The coalition believes the auto industry can make a big difference and what the coalition needs most are vehicle to deliver supplies during the coronavirus.
So far, dealerships in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Illinois and California have offered to help.
According to the report, food, it turns out, is a major issue right now. Some restaurants suddenly find themselves with a dilemma. They can’t open and have food that’s perishable, but they don’t have enough people to drive the food to a pantry or homeless shelter.
