Last week, UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage donated $10,000 to Operation BBQ Relief, an organization providing on-the-ground Hurricane Ian relief by offering hot meals to families and first responders in affected areas.
Operation BBQ Relief aims to bring delicious, hot BBQ meals to communities in need. They have served more than 500,000 meals in their efforts to provide relief from the natural disaster.
We’re proud to donate to a cause that helps those in need after suffering the destruction of Hurricane Ian. As a member of this community, we want to give back however we can. We’re confident our donation will help Operation BBQ Relief continue to provide help everywhere a hot meal can help.
“It is extremely important to us that the brave men and women who get called on during natural disasters know that they have the support of organizations from around the United States,” our CEO Michael McAlhany told local news sources. “These individuals put themselves in harm’s way, and by partnering with Operation BBQ Relief, UNITS® can help provide a warm meal to these remarkable first responders who are working day and night to help those in need. We consider it a privilege to support their efforts.”
“Operation BBQ Relief is honored to team up with UNITS® to serve communities impacted by Hurricane Ian,” said Operation BBQ Relief CEO and co-founder Stan Hays. “We are grateful for the support from UNITS® as we serve over 500,000 hot meals to first responders and families in southwest Florida.”
This is just another effort on our part to help our communities when they need us. We’re locally owned and operated, and we care about the health and livelihood of our neighbors. We hope that Operation BBQ Relief can continue to help those devastated by Hurricane Ian and beyond.
