Mazda donated 16 vehicles to the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP), making it the automaker’s largest in-kind vehicle donation.

Each of the 16 vehicles will be donated and delivered to American Red Cross offices in Texas, Okla., Ark., Kan., N.J., Ill., and Fla., according to the company.

“Through the Mazda Drive for Good program, Mazda has the ability to work with strong non-profit partners throughout the United States—and the American Red Cross continues to provide an incredible partnership sharing similar values as ours,” said Robert Davis, senior vice president of U.S. operations at MNAO. “Partnerships such as these are important to the very being of who Mazda is as an organization.”

The donations were an increase from the 15 vehicles that Mazda donated last year, according to the company

The vehicles will be used to deliver emergency supplies and services to families affected by disasters.
