NEW YORK (Sept. 27)—Lear Corp. and Yokohama Rubber Co. are the latest rubber product manufacturers to commit financial support to assist support agencies, survivors and families of the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. Southfield, Mich.-based Lear will give $250,000 to aid the disaster relief effort and has implemented a plan to match employee contributions to selected funds on a dollar-for-dollar basis. Fullerton, Calif.-headquartered Yokohama will donate $100,000 to the Red Cross Relief Fund and its sponsored Team PTG BMW race cars have been re-painted red, white and blue for the Petit LeMans-ALMS in October to honor the victims, their families and those who participated in the recovery effort.
