The ARA Foundation continued to benefit from the generosity of the rental industry during 2012’s second quarter. Numerous donations were received to support the Foundation’s programs.
These donations directly support the scholarship program, REAP (Rental Executive Advisory Program), disaster relief program, disaster recovery program and the international rental business exchange program.
Contributions to the ARA Foundation are welcome from anyone within the equipment rental industry. ARA members also can make contributions when renewing their membership dues annually. The Foundation website, ARAfoundation.com, has complete details on giving to the Foundation.
