In response to the devastating series of wildfires that have prompted evacuations and caused widespread destruction in Lāhainā on Maui and throughout Hawaii, 7-Eleven Inc. is making an immediate $25,000 donation to the American Red Cross Hawaii Wildfires Relief Fund relief efforts.
Hawaii residents are coping with the tremendous devastation in the wake of these wildfires, which will likely rank among the worst in modern-day U.S. history.
“These funds will provide lifesaving aid to those directly impacted by this crisis,” said Marissa Jarratt, executive vice president and chief marketing and sustainability officer.
Through its 7-Eleven Cares Foundation, 7-Eleven is a member of the American Red Cross Disaster Responder program. Members of the program include leading corporations that donate a minimum of $250,000 annually to provide the highest level of support to American Red Cross preparedness and relief efforts. Year-round support from 7-Eleven helps ensure the Red Cross can act immediately when disasters occur.
7-Eleven Inc. operates, franchises or licenses more than 83,000 convenience stores in 19 countries and regions, including more than 13,000 7-Eleven convenience stores in the United States and Canada. In addition, it operates and franchises Speedway, Stripes, Laredo Taco Company and Raise the Roost Chicken and Biscuits locations.
