Amid the ongoing and devastating wildfires engulfing Maui and the Big Island of Hawaii, Purina has stepped forward to make a meaningful contribution. The company is donating $25,000 to Greater Good Charities, a global nonprofit organization, to bolster their crisis response endeavors. This donation aims to offer immediate relief and long-term recovery assistance to both individuals and animals affected by the wildfires in Hawaii. These fires have resulted in tragic losses, including lives, buildings, and the displacement of numerous people and animals. Regarded as the most severe natural disaster in Hawaii over the past three decades, this catastrophe has prompted Purina’s compassionate response.
Purina’s generous contribution will facilitate Greater Good Charities in delivering crucial support to Hawaiian-based animal rescues and emergency shelters. The aid will be channeled through cash grants for rescue and medical care, provision of pet food, and essential supplies. This initiative aligns with Purina’s long-standing commitment to assisting people and pets in times of distress, further strengthening their partnership with Greater Good Charities.
Kim Beardslee, Director of Community Affairs at Purina, expressed deep sympathy for the affected families and their pets, emphasizing Purina’s historical dedication to aiding both humans and animals during crises. The company’s extensive support, which includes over $30 million in annual monetary grants, pet food, and cat litter donations, is a testament to their unwavering commitment to fostering the bond between people and their pets, as well as their dedication to disaster relief efforts.
Liz Baker, CEO of Greater Good Charities, highlighted the organization’s ongoing efforts to provide immediate assistance and aid in the long-term recovery of the communities impacted by the Maui wildfires. The partnership with Purina is a significant step forward in addressing the challenges posed by this disaster.
