Abuelo’s Mexican restaurants today announced they will donate more than $3200 to the American Red Cross disaster relief efforts to aid the victims of the deadly tornado outbreak in Oklahoma.
Abuelo’s team members helped collect donations in 12 Abuelo’s locations and in the company’s new fast casual concept, Abuelo’s Taqueria. Guests who brought in a flyer or mentioned the Oklahoma benefit had 20% of their purchase donated to the American Red Cross.
“We were moved to help the victims of the recent tornado disasters in Oklahoma,” said Jeff Dossett, Regional Partner of Abuelo’s. “The local community showed wonderful support for the disaster victims. We are honored to be able to help the American Red Cross in rebuilding the hope in Oklahoma.”
