Friday, Nov. 11, 2016, Harris Teeter will present The American Red Cross with a check for $183,873 to assist disaster relief efforts throughout our local communities affected by Hurricane Matthew, which made land-fall in early October.
This donation is made possible by the success of Harris Teeter’s Emergency Support Campaign which the company hosted to benefit its neighbors who were displaced or affected by the storm. The campaign launched Oct. 13, 2016 and ran through Oct. 28, 2016. During this time, Harris Teeter invited its shoppers and associates at all locations to donate $1, $3 or $5 at checkout.
One-hundred percent of proceeds from the in-store campaign will be given to American Red Cross and will be allocated specifically to efforts directly related to Hurricane Matthew domestic relief.
“We are extremely grateful for the generosity of our loyal shoppers and valued associates. Without them, this donation would not be possible,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “In addition to the funds collected in our stores, Harris Teeter donated 17 truckloads of bottled water, seven truckloads of ice and nearly $30,000 in food donations to community members throughout North & South Carolina immediately following the storm.”
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.
