Brookshire Grocery Co. Launches In-Store Initiative for Hurricane Ida Relief Efforts
September 1-14, 2021
Brookshire Grocery Co. is launching a relief campaign for customers to donate to the American Red Cross for people who are affected by Hurricane Ida. Through Sept. 14, all Brookshire’s, Super 1 Foods, Spring Market and FRESH by Brookshire’s stores will have $1, $3, and $5 coupons available for customers to make monetary donations at checkout. The donations will go to the American Red Cross relief efforts for those affected by the hurricane. “Our hearts and prayers go out to those in Louisiana and Mississippi who are being affected by Hurricane Ida,” said Brad Brookshire, Brookshire Grocery Co. Chairman and CEO. “Our Company is dedicated to giving back and supporting our communities and people. A year ago, we stood by our customers, friends, and neighbors to recover from Hurricane Laura, and we will do it again. I know that with our customers’ support we can make a significant impact on relief efforts.” Brookshire Grocery Co. is deploying its “Community Kitchen” and a team of employee-partners to serve free hot meals to people who are affected by Hurricane Ida in the Southeast Louisiana area. In the Super 1 Foods store parking lot at the store in New Roads, a team will be served burgers and sausage on Tuesday night. On Wednesday, September 1 at 7:30 a.m. we will be serving a hot breakfast. BGC’s top priority is safety of our employee-partners and customers. In commitment to that, our team will continue to uphold strict COVID-19 protocols in our stores and while providing relief efforts in the community. BGC employee-partners will wear gloves and masks while providing contactless service in the drive thru lines at the Community Kitchen site. The company encourages people without vehicles to practice social distancing and wear masks or facial coverings when receiving a meal.
