If you’ve been wondering how you can do your part to help victims of Hurricane Harvey, look to your Vodka Soda for advice. Tito’s Vodka is partnering with the American Red Cross to help affected communities throughout Houston and the Gulf Coast. The company will match every dollar donated to the Red Cross, all the way up to $50,000. And that’s not all the Austin-based distillery is doing.
The company is putting their delivery trucks to work, offering them up to the Austin Relief Network (ADRN), which is accepting monetary donations and hosting a community donation drive in the Austin city area. The Hope Family Thrift Store in Austin will be receiving items today through Saturday (check their website for next week’s details). Donations can also be shipped to ADRN at ADRN, PO Box 3817, Cedar Park, TX 78630. The donated items will be delivered to those in need using Tito’s delivery trucks. And still, that’s not all the company is doing to help.
Known for their love of dogs and animal adoption efforts, Tito’s is also donating $10,000 to the Austin Pets Alive shelter, which is helping pets rescued from areas affected by the hurricane. Tito’s is encouraging others to donate to the shelter and their sister company located in Houston. If you are a vet or animal welfare professional in the Texas area and want to volunteer, the SPCA would love your assistance. Other agencies that could use donations are the Animal Defense League in Texas and the Humane Society.
