The Coca‑Cola system is mobilizing resources to support the communities impacted by the Maui wildfires. Together, our Bottling Partners, Maui Soda & Ice Works and Coca‑Cola Bottling Company of Hawaii (Odom Corporation), are donating truckloads of water to the frontline organizations and nonprofit groups leading the relief efforts. The Coca‑Cola Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Coca‑Cola Company, has awarded a $350,000 grant to help the American Red Cross provide food, shelter, essential supplies and critical emotional support to those in need. The Coca‑Cola Foundation is also an ongoing supporter of American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program, which builds the organization's capabilities to respond to crises faced by communities. The company’s North America Operating Unit (NAOU) is contributing an incremental $100,000 to the American Red Cross and $50,000 to the Hawaii Food Bank to support local aid and relief efforts.
The Coca‑Cola system’s top priority following every natural disaster is to make sure all associates and their families are safe. The Coca‑Cola Employee Disaster Relief Fund, supported by Coca‑Cola colleagues with additional funding from the Coca‑Cola system and The Coca‑Cola Foundation, provides financial assistance to those impacted by the Maui wildfires.
