Hooters Kicks Off National Fundraising Campaign to Support American Red Cross Harvey Relief Efforts


Hooters today announced it is donating funds to the American Red Cross for its Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Throughout the month of September, guests at participating Hooters locations in the U.S. can choose to round up their checks or make a donation to benefit the cause. Hooters will match guest donations dollar for dollar, providing up to $100,000 in additional support.

In addition to donating while dining in at participating locations, Hooters fans can also support relief efforts by ordering their favorite Hooters food for takeout via the new Hooters mobile app. For every paid order made on the app through Sept. 30, Hooters will donate an additional $1 to the American Red Cross, up to $50,000. Visit the Apple App Store or Google Play to download the app and place an order at one of more than 190 participating locations.

“Immediately after Hurricane Harvey hit in Texas, our franchisees and employees came forward, suggesting ways that the Hooters family could help those in need. Our thoughts and prayers remain with those who have been affected, including the thousands of Hooters employees and their families in Texas and Louisiana,” said Carl Sweat, global chief marketing officer, Hooters of America.

The total funds raised across participating Hooters locations will be matched by the Hooters Community Endowment Fund (HOO.C.E.F.), a 501(c)(3) company that has contributed more than $10 million to local and national charitable groups since its inception in 1992.

To help its employees personally impacted by the disaster, Hooters has launched a variety of efforts, including the Hooters Employee Assistance Fund. Hooters of America employees, friends and supporters may make tax deductible contributions via a fund on Emergency Assistance Foundation, permitting tax free grants to qualifying employees in times of need.
