SOUTH AMBOY, N.J., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The survivors of the devastating earthquake in Haiti are in desperate need of help.  DCH Auto Group has responded to this urgent call for aid through a donation to Doctors Without Borders.  Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization and operates independently of any political, military, or religious agendas.

"Our deepest sympathy goes out to everyone who has been affected by the terrible earthquake in Haiti," said Susan Scarola, President and Chief Executive Officer of DCH Auto Group.  "Our donation to Doctors Without Borders, helping the victims of this improbable disaster, is an extension of DCH Auto Group's unyielding embrace of the tenants of corporate citizenship."

In that spirit of corporate citizenship and concern for the victims of the tragedy in Haiti, several DCH dealerships are continuing with efforts to raise funds to help the earthquake victims.  DCH Tustin Acura in Tustin, CA, held a "Carnations for Donations" drive to support Doctors Without Borders.  Customers were given carnations in exchange for a donation. DCH Honda of Temecula, DCH Acura of Temecula and DCH Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Temecula, Temecula, California, held an employee dress down day.  Dealership employees wore jeans to work in exchange for a donation to help the citizens of Haiti.  In Freehold, NJ, DCH Freehold Toyota is actively collecting donations from customers and employees to aid in the rescue and recovery efforts.
