Universal City Nissan Supports The San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission After Significant Loss In Fire

San Fernando Valley, CA — May 12, 2014 — On Saturday May 3rd, The San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission suffered a tragic and significant loss when a fire broke out in the early morning at a wood pallet warehouse adjacent to the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission. “While our guests and staff were able to escape the fire unharmed, the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission was declared a total loss and our guests are once again displaced,” said Wade Trimmer, Executive Director. “This was our center of operations, our headquarters. We’re going to have to start over from scratch.”

Universal City Nissan was quick to respond to the cry for help by immediately donating $2,500 and one-year use of a brand-new 2014 Nissan Frontier pickup truck outfitted with San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission graphics.

“When I heard about this tragic fire destroying The San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission and displacing more than 20 people from the only shelter they had, I knew we had to take action and help,” said Joey Sage, President of The Sage Automotive Group – the organization that owns Universal City Nissan. “

FYI -- Universal City Nissan is NOT collecting donations for the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission. I went in today and spoke to the receptionist and a manager. Neither one of them knew anything about accepting donations for SFV Rescue Mission. Maybe the reporter made a mistake or Mr Sage did not share this with his employees?
