Kawasaki USA’s SoCal headquarters became ground zero to a massive food drive for victims of Typhoon Yolanda.

The goodwill keeps pouring in from all corners of the personal watercraft industry. As the IJSBA is currently accepting donations to help those caught in the devastation of typhoon Yolanda, we were very happy to hear that the team at Kawasaki USA’s Southern California headquarters gathered together to lend a hand.

According to Kawasaki’s Craig “Fuzzy” Boyd, the Kawasaki staff “sorted, portioned, filled, packaged, weighed and sealed and boxed” an impressive 25,152 bags of food to help relieve the widespread hunger felt by those trapped in the Philippines. The entire process went amazingly quick – in just over 2 hours – thanks to all hands being on deck.

Additionally, Fuzzy notes that Kawasaki donated 25 cents per package, totaling $6,288.
