Dockery’s announces that it has donated more than $31,000 to the Red Cross for hurricane relief in the Carolinas. During October, the Daniel Island restaurant and brewery committed to giving ten percent of all purchases and fifty percent of all BLOOM Organic Light Lager six pack sales to the Red Cross to assist those in areas devastated by winds and flooding brought by the Category 4 hurricane.
“Charleston was spared by Florence, but as a city we know what it’s like to be impacted by a hurricane,” said Dockery’s General Manager Chuck Isenberg. “The Daniel Island community really rallied around the idea of giving this month and we were able to assist a neighboring area that was less fortunate that us.”
The total damage by Hurricane Florence is expected to reach $22 billion. At least 48 lives were lost in the storm.
“Support from partners such as Dockery’s allows the Red Cross to quickly mobilize volunteers, equipment, and supplies to provide help and hope to people who need it most,” said Louise Welch Williams, CEO, Palmetto SC Region of the American Red Cross. “We deeply appreciate Dockery’s generous donation as we work together to prevent and alleviate human suffering in South Carolina.”
“Volunteers make up more than 90 percent of the Red Cross workforce,” continues Williams. “We invite the public to go online to redcross.org to become a volunteer, to donate money to our mission, or to sign-up to donate lifesaving blood.”
