Salsarita’s is not only known for fresh, quality food. It’s also known for making a big impact in the community.
Salsarita’s has been a longtime friend of The Salvation Army. In fact, this football season, Salsarita’s is helping to raise support for the Boys & Girls Clubs through the Shaq’s Tackles for Kids campaign. They are always quick to jump in to support an important cause in the community … or in this case, in the country. Immediately following Hurricane Harvey’s landfall, they jumped into action.
To show its support for those impacted in Texas, Salsarita’s donated $1 from every burrito sold on Aug. 31 to the Salvation Army’s Disaster Relief effort. Today, Phil Friedman, CEO of Salsarita’s delivered a $10,000 check to The Salvation Army!
“After seeing the devastation in Texas, I knew we could do something,” said Friedman.
“One hundred percent of those funds will go directly to providing assistance – including food and drinks to survivors, cleaning supplies and other essential commodities, direct financial aid to those effected, or to support disaster relief workers serving in the area,” said Major Larry Broome, area commander of The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte.
To date, the Salvation Army has 95 mobile feeding units (canteens) on the ground in Texas and has provided more than 300,000 meals. Meanwhile, focus in the Carolinas is turning to Hurricane Irma as it bears down on the southeastern coast. Charlotte’s mobile feeding unit and volunteer teams are on standby waiting to assist as needed in the response.
