March 30, 2011, Chicago – After contacting the Japanese Vending Association to express deepest sympathy for the tragedies the country has recently faced, the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) has determined the best way to help the Japanese people is through donations to the American Red Cross.

The American Red Cross is accepting cash donations designated for Japan, as well as in kind donations, including bulk quantities of products and services from manufacturers, suppliers and distributors.

“NAMA has given a donation to the Red Cross and we encourage our members to rally around the Japanese people to help them recover from the devastation that they have had to endure. Our thanks to all of you who have already done so,” said LyNae Schleyer, NAMA senior director for education and OneShow.

Schleyer also assured that NAMA will keep its members updated on information coming from their sister association in Japan.
