Arkansas residents impacted by recent tornadoes will benefit from the donation.
Kum & Go President and CEO Kyle Krause announced that a $10,000 contribution has been made to the American Red Cross and will be directed toward helping Arkansas residents, after tornadoes touched down in the South leaving damage in their wake.
According to Krause, it will take many more weeks to determine the full scope of the disaster in Arkansas, so his company wanted to proactively reach out and support the recovery efforts.
“Many of us have watched the local news coverage with sadness as massive tornadoes swept across the South. We believe it is important for Kum & Go to help Arkansas residents since we have more than 25 stores in the state. One of Kum & Go’s seven core values is ‘caring’ and making this contribution to the American Red Cross is just another way to reinforce this value,” Krause said.
Kum & Go has more than 430 stores in 11 states.
