Love’s contributes to tornado relief
Love’s Travel Stops will donate $25,000 to the American Red Cross, Louisville, Ky., regional chapter to help communities in the Southern Indiana and Kentucky areas struck by tornados on March 2, 2012.
Love’s says that several of its employees in Memphis, Ind., were affected by the severe storm damage, losing their homes and property. Since the tornados struck last Friday, Love’s says its employees have worked both at Love’s and in the community to help residents in their time of need.
Love’s employees came together to aid those affected by offering free water, paying for meals at the Subway connected to Love’s, providing free showers and ensuring all customers had access to items they needed. Love’s employees have also set up grills and generators in affected areas to serve hot dogs, hamburgers, hot cocoa and more in partnership with the American Red Cross.
Love’s says it is committed to serving the communities where they operate and offering a helping hand in times of need.
“We are fortunate that our employees remained safe during the tornados throughout the Midwest last week,” says Tom Love, president and CEO. “Our hearts go out to those who were affected by these devastating storms. The dedication and compassion Love’s employees have shown during this great time of need in their community is a true testament to their character, and I am proud to say they work for Love’s.”
