Whataburger Donates $100,000 to Help Texas Flood Relief Efforts

After massive flooding in the Lone Star state, the popular fast food chain Whataburger donated a large sum to the Red Cross

The regional burger chain is one of the many organizations helping to clean up the devastation left by massive flooding.

Central Texas is still reeling from the massive floods triggered by heavy rains in the Lone Star state and Oklahoma this Memorial Day weekend, which caused mass destruction: thousands of homes destroyed, at least 17 dead, and 40 people reported missing, according to Fox News. As Texas struggles to clean up in the midst of devastation, donations are pouring in through the Red Cross from individuals, nonprofits, and businesses. Whataburger, the popular burger chain based in San Antonio, Texas, has donated $100,000 to the Red Cross to help relief efforts.

“The recent storms over the weekend devastated our friends and neighbors in Central Texas, so Whataburger wanted to do their part to honor first responders and support relief efforts,” Whataburger’s press statement said. “The Red Cross is doing a critical job providing assistance to those who need it most, and Whataburger invites the Central Texas community and other businesses to join in the support efforts.”


In addition to the generous donation, from Tuesday, May 26 through Tuesday, June 9, first responders can get a free meal at Whataburger locations in New Braunfels, San Marcos, and Kyle, Texas.
