Half of all sales from all Texas and Louisiana Chipotle restaurants on Sunday, September 10 will go directly to the United Way Harvey Recovery Fund
Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) will donate half of all sales from its Texas and Louisiana restaurants this Sunday, September 10 to the United Way Harvey Recovery Fund. The fund will help local United Ways meet the storm-related needs and support mid- to long-term recovery throughout the affected regions.
“We are deeply saddened for all of those who have been impacted by this devastating storm and we hope these efforts provide some relief during these very trying times,” said Steve Ells, Chipotle CEO and Chairman. “We are committed to taking care of our own, including the communities where our customers and employees live and work.”
”We are so grateful for this generous gift from Chipotle,” said Mary Sellers, U.S. President, United Way Worldwide, “The recovery phase of Harvey will be extensive and thanks to generous partnerships like this one, United Way will be well-positioned to help communities rebuild in the months and years to come.”
To contribute, residents can simply visit any Chipotle in Texas or Louisiana at any time from open to close (10:45am to 10 p.m.) on Sunday, September 10 and half of all of the food and beverage sales will be donated to the United Way. Digital, catering and takeout orders, in addition to any orders placed in the restaurant, are also included in this fundraiser.
In addition to the fundraisers in the more than 200 area restaurants, last week Chipotle donated more than 50,000 pounds of food and supplies, which was distributed to those in need at the Houston Convention Center, Children’s Medical Hospital and Food Bank of San Antonio. Chipotle also made a cash donation to the Red Cross for immediate emergency efforts and paid all employees for any time missed while restaurants were closed.
