White Spot and Triple O's restaurants are donating $2 to the Canadian Red Cross relief funds from every burger sold

Burgers for wildfire support

British Columbia based restaurant chain White Spot and its Premium QSR brand Triple O’s will be holding a fundraising day on July 29th to support Canadian Red Cross relief efforts for those impacted by the wildfires burning across the province.

All 96 White Spot and Triple o’s restaurant locations throughout BC and on the 11 BC Feries offering White Spot will donate $2 from the sale of every burger purchase that day for dine-in and to-go orders.

The Government of Canada and the Government of British Columbia will each match every dollar donated to the Canadian Red Cross 2021 Fires appeal, totalling a $6 donation for every burger sold.

“The B.C. Wildfires are having a devastating impact on our province including many of the communities in which we call home,” said Warren Erhart, President, White Spot Restaurants.

“We are a community-first organization and are proud to have received immediate agreement from our family of franchisees and partners to provide support. We hope these much-needed funds will provide some relief to those who need it most during this extremely challenging time.”

In 2017, a similar fundraising initiative raised $60,000 to support B.C. wildfire relief efforts.

“Thanks to the generosity of Canadians everywhere, the Canadian Red Cross is able to support the immediate and ongoing relief and recovery efforts during this wildfire season in British Columbia," said John Kim, Associate Director, Corporate Partnerships, Canadian Red Cross.

This year, donations will be used for immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long-term recovery, resilience and preparedness for future events in British Columbia and impacted regions, including consequential events related to the fires.

“In partnership with White Spot, BC Ferries supports this great initiative to assist our fellow British Columbians during this difficult time,” said Corrine Storey, Vice President of Customer Services with BC Ferries.
