Driven Brands Foundation Raises Money for Hurricane Relief

Posted on September 12, 2017

The Driven Brands Charitable Foundation has partnered with the retail brands of Driven Brands Inc. to help raise funds for Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma relief through the American Red Cross.

The participating companies include CarStar Auto Body Repair Experts, Maaco, Meineke Car Care Centers, Take 5 Oil Change and 1-800 Radiator & AC.

“Hurricane Harvey continues to have a devastating impact on Texas and Louisiana, while we are just seeing the impact on Florida,” says Noah Pollack, executive vice president and general counsel for Driven Brands. “Our thoughts are with our franchisees, their staffs and families in the storm zones and the millions of people whose lives have been disrupted by rain, wind and floods and who are now facing a lengthy clean-up and restoration.”

Franchisees, employees, vendor partners and customers can visit the Driven Brands Charitable Foundation site or any of the participating brand websites to donate. Proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross relief efforts in both regions affected by the hurricanes.

Driven Brands has more than 50 locations in the Houston area, and the company says fortunately, most store locations had minimal damage during Hurricane Harvey and are open for business.

In Florida, there are some 160 locations.

The foundation raised more than $650,000 in 2016 and its fundraising efforts have now surpassed more than $1.5 million since it was established in 2012.
