Mazda has joined the slew of automakers that have been chipping in cash and cars to help the victims of a massive tornado that ripped through Moore, Oklahoma. 

The Japanese brand is donating $25,000 to the American Red Cross, while the Mazda Foundation Board of Trustees is also donating $25,000 for a total of $50,000.

In addition, Mazda is offering $500 cash towards the purchase of a new Mazda vehicle for those people who had their vehicles damaged or destroyed. A 90 day grace period for the first payment is also part of the deal.

Existing Mazda customers based in Cleveland, Lincoln, McClain, Oklahoma and Pottawatomie counties will have their late fees and insufficient funds fees waived by the brand as well, if they missed their payment this month due to the tornado.

“The tornado that touched-down in Moore has had an unprecedented impact on those located far outside the actual impact area, including our own employees, dealers and customers,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO.
