Aerosmith Support Disaster Relief With American Red Cross Vehicles

Aerosmith have donated two community emergency vehicles to the Red Cross of Central Florida to assist with hurricane relief efforts. The Chevrolet Silverado trucks feature the band’s “Walk This Way” logo and they will be delivered in spring 2023.

Guitarist Joe Perry said the following:

“Aerosmith and I were devastated by the disastrous impact of Hurricane Ian. Too often we are seeing these disasters increase in frequency and intensity due to climate change, having a strong Red Cross is more critical than ever before. We’re proud to support the Red Cross and we know these vehicles will be an important tool helping people in need for years to come.”

Eric Corliss, the regional CEO of American Red Cross of Central Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands, also commented::

“During a local disaster, Red Cross community emergency response vehicles are among the first on the scene, driven by compassionate volunteers who provide emergency relief and emotional support,” said . “Every day, the Red Cross is at work across Central Florida helping individuals and communities prepare for disasters and other emergencies. These two new vehicles will be essential to fulfilling that part of our mission.”

Bassist Tom Hamilton added:

“My family has a small place in the area that was hit hardest by Ian. We’ve been going there every year for almost thirty years. Our house was severely damaged and our hearts as well. We know others were affected even more so I’m very grateful to be able to make a contribution towards helping people get their lives back to normal. We made it through Charlie; we’ll make it through this one!”
