Omadi Donates More Than $8000 to Survivor Fund
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., Jan. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum today announced that Omadi presented a donation of $8,178.47 to the International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum’s Survivor Fund during the recent American Towman Exhibition in Baltimore. Last year Omadi committed to donating a portion of every tow completed in their towing management platform to the Survivor Fund. Omadi felt that because tow operators put their life on the line every time they step out on the roadside, that they should reciprocate in kind. The funds will provide financial support to families of those lost in the line of service.
“As we’ve worked with tow operators across the country we’ve gotten to know these wonderful individuals not simply as clients but as friends. It pains us anytime we hear that one of these dedicated professionals loses their life while in the line of duty and we hope that our donation helps to relieve some of their families’ financial burdens,” said Charles Lukens, CEO of Omadi.
Omadi plans to continue to help alleviate some of the financial burdens felt by loved ones of those who have passed away in the line of duty as well as bring more exposure to the Survivor Fund and the issues that cause towing operator deaths.
“Omadi stepped up to the plate in an important way by generously offering to donate to the Survivor Fund based on their business volumes,” said Jeffrey Godwin, ITRHFM First Vice President and Survivor Fund Committee Co-Chairman. “Support from the Omadi organization is a welcome addition to our efforts to support the families of the men and women lost in our industry.”
On average, close to 60 road service professionals are killed each year assisting stranded motorists on the side of busy roadways or performing their duties in towing and recovery. The Survivor Fund, founded in 2006 and managed by the International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum, was started to offer financial support to the families that have lost a loved one in the line of service within the industry. Since its inception, the Survivor Fund has approved and paid out well over 150 claims to support families in their time of need due to tragic accidents.
The International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum, located in Chattanooga, TN, houses an array of displays and exhibits showcasing the history of towing and recovery. The rotating collection includes early equipment by Manley, Holmes, Vulcan, and Weaver. The Hall of Fame honors individuals who have significantly advanced the industry. The Museum includes a theater, a library, and a gift shop selling souvenirs related to the towing industry. On the outside grounds is the Wall of the Fallen memorial, dedicated to towers who died in the line of service. The ITRHFM Survivor Fund assists the families of the men and women that have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of service by providing a uniform financial gift at the time of their loss. ITRHFM is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and accepts donations for its programs and operations from individuals, corporations and groups.
