Sprouts Announces South Texas Relief Efforts

PHOENIX, Ariz. – Aug. 28, 2017 – The Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation will donate $50,000 to the American Red Cross to support those affected by the catastrophic weather damage in South Texas. In addition to the Foundation’s support, the national healthy grocery chain and its private label suppliers are making direct donations of water and non-perishables to Texas-area hunger relief agencies.

“We are deeply grateful for the generous donation from Sprouts,” said Don Speck, Chief Development Officer from the Arizona, New Mexico and El Paso Region of the American Red Cross. “It will help us provide immediate disaster relief by offering food, shelter and comfort to those devastated by the Hurricane Harvey disaster as well as services to help them on the long road to recovery.”

Sprouts operates seven stores in the Houston area and 16 in south Texas. For the latest on store openings and closures, please visit Sprouts.com/Relief, which will be updated based on current weather conditions.
