Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM), through its parent company Tan Chong Motor Holdings, has donated RM30,000 to the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) to assist in providing much-needed aid to flood victims across the country.

“As a Malaysian corporation, doing our part for the community is our responsibility, and it is important that we do what we can for them in their time of need,” said ETCM marketing and product planning director Tan Keng Meng, who yesterday presented the contribution on behalf of Tan Chong to MRCS national chairman YM Tunku Tan Sri Shahriman Tunku Sulaiman.

“Our fellow Malaysians are struggling to cope with misery and frustration due to the loss or damage of their homes and belongings. Our thoughts and prayers are with them through this difficult period. We hope our contribution will provide some respite and relieve their burden,” Tan added.

ETCM recently launched the Nissan Relief Campaign to help flood-hit Nissan customers in Malaysia. Discounts on parts and labour are offered, plus free towing charges of up to RM150. The campaign began on December 27, 2014 and is set to end on February 28, 2015.

Tan Chong is also organising a donation drive to collect contributions from its staff at all levels throughout its offices nationwide. The Group aims to match the funds collected and will be channelling the collections to help flood-affected members of its staff recover as quickly as possible.
