Hyundai and First Choice Farm & Lawn Support Tornado Cleanup Efforts in Tennessee

Hyundai and First Choice Farm & Lawn Support Tornado Cleanup Efforts in Tennessee

January 4, 2022 | Corporate News

NORCROSS, Ga. (Jan. 4, 2022) – Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas, Inc. partnered with First Choice Farm & Lawn, one of its dealers, headquartered in Union City, Tenn., to assist with cleanup efforts in nearby Samburg, Tenn., which incurred heavy tornado damage from the same series of December storms that left devastation across six states and killed dozens of people in Kentucky.

First Choice helped coordinate the cleanup effort by calling on their customers and staff and deploying three Hyundai excavators to the area. Hyundai covered the cost of shipping the excavators, and also dispatched Ed Harseim, its North Central sales manager, to aid in the cleanup.

“We have locations in Kentucky and Tennessee,” said Ron Parks, owner of First Choice Farm & Lawn. “Many of our customers were affected by the tornadoes, and one of our employees and their parents lost their homes in Caycee, Ky., so this is personal. We are glad to be able to do what we can to help, and we appreciate Hyundai’s support.”

People and contractors came from all around to support this effort.  The goal was to clean the town up in a day from what looked like it would take months to clean up.  However, with the help of a tremendous amount of volunteers and equipment, the demotion and clean-up were completed in two days.  We are proud to have been able to give back to make this possible.
