Military ORVs To Salvation Army For Disaster Relief
Polaris Industries is donating 10 military, off-road vehicles (ORV) to help The Salvation Army’s transport food, water and other critical supplies to survivors, in Moore, OK. The units will be delivered from the Polaris plant in Osceola, WI free of charge, thanks to a generous donation from Bay and Bay Transport and Overbye Trucking.
The donated units, a combination of military ATV, RANGER and RZR vehicles, are outfitted with either runflat tires or non-pneumatic tires (NPT) to prevent down time. Run-Flat tires resist the effects of deflation when punctured giving the operator the ability to continue to use the vehicle; and NPTs are designed to never go flat and are virtually indestructible.
“Oklahoma will rebound from this terrible tragedy, through the resiliency of its people and the assistance of organizations like The Salvation Army,” said Scott Wine, Polaris Chief Executive Officer. “Polaris has long supported their charitable efforts, and we hope the donation of these vehicles will assist them as they provide the affected communities with the relief they desperately need.”
