Red Cross Partners With McDonalds

Steve Nisbet Donates $1,223 To Red Cross

LABELLE, FL. -- The Glades Area Branch of the American Red Cross joined Hendry County Emergency Management and the Fire Departments in LaBelle, Clewiston and Western Palm Beach County to hand out preparedness information bags at Nisbet Enterprise, Inc. owned McDonald�s locations this week. 

Information bags were stuffed with brochures including a checklist of supplies that should be included in a disaster supply kit, how to purify water in the event of water contamination and tips on preparing a family disaster plan. Nearly 600 bags we handed out over the course of three days at three different McDonald�s locations in Belle Glade, Clewiston and LaBelle. 

Debbie McDuffie, Glades Area Red Cross Manager said "Partnering with Nisbet Enterprises has allowed us the opportunity to provide the community of Belle Glade, Clewiston and LaBelle with timely hurricane preparedness information."

In addition to allowing the Red Cross to hand-out information to customers, Nisbet Enterprises also donated 5% of net proceeds for the day from the three restraurants to the Red Cross, a total of $1,223.  The money raised will go to help the Glades Area in the event of a hurricane or other disaster.

Steve Nisbet, Sr., Owner of Nisbet Enterprises said "It is always wonderful to give back to the community, the information the Red Cross provides is critical and we are glad to be able to help."
