Foodservice distribution company Sysco Corporation has announced that it is to donate $25,000 to Bahamas Red Cross and provide funds directly to impacted Sysco associates in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian.
In the Bahamas, Sysco operates as Bahamas Food Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary, headquartered in Nassau, New Providence.
Bahamas Red Cross is an integral organization for providing critical assistance to disaster relief areas, such as those affected by Hurricane Dorian. The organization provides assistance in the form of temporary shelter, food, clean water and other life-saving essentials to those who need it most.
“Our valued communities, customers and associates are the heart of Sysco,” said Tom Bené, Sysco’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “We have a long history of providing aid in times of disasters, helping communities prepare and recover by delivering food, water and emergency supplies. Our donation to Bahamas Red Cross for Hurricane Dorian relief will allow us to provide additional assistance to the communities, customers and associates we are committed to.
“One of Sysco’s top priorities during times of natural disasters is making deliveries to critical customer locations, such as hospitals and shelters,” Bené continued. “We have been working diligently to provide water, food and other supplies to our valued customers in the Bahamas.”
