Charlotte, NC, 2015-12-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — Wednesday, December 16, 2015, Harris Teeter will present The American Red Cross with a $135,841.35 check to assist disaster relief efforts in South Carolina for those communities affected by the extreme flooding in early October.

This donation is made possible by the success of Harris Teeter’s in-store donation card campaign which the company hosted to benefit its South Carolina neighbors who were displaced or affected by the flooding. The campaign launched when the flooding began and ran through October 31, 2015. During this time, Harris Teeter invited its shoppers and associates in North and South Carolina stores to donate $1, $3 or $5 at checkout.

One-hundred percent of proceeds from the in-store campaign will be given to The American Red Cross and is designated for disaster relief in the state of South Carolina. In addition to the donation card campaign, Harris Teeter donated a truckload of bottled water to flood victims in Columbia, S.C. and provided transportation of donated product to affected areas for various community collection efforts.

The American Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need and responds to disasters ranging from home fires that affect a single family to hurricanes that affect tens of thousands, to earthquakes that impact millions.
