In support of the Burger King brand’s continued hurricane relief efforts in the United States and Puerto Rico, SICOM announced the donation of $25,000 to Burger King’s Puerto Rico relief fund and the Burger King McLAMORE Foundation.
The donation, divided in half between the two relief funds, is for helping Burger King employees recovering from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in the U.S. and Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. Burger King’s relief efforts in Puerto Rico are through Caribbean Restaurants Charities, Inc., which provides designated disaster relief funds to employees of Caribbean Restaurants, LLC, the exclusive Burger King franchise in Puerto Rico.
The BK Family Fund, part of the Burger King McLAMORE Foundation, provides grants to Burger King employees facing unexpected hardship, such as natural disasters and medical emergencies. Since 2004, this fund has provided more than 1,000 families with $1.5 million in grants.
“We’re proud to contribute to Burger King’s work to help those affected by these hurricanes, which extends beyond Burger King employees to include their families and members of their local communities,” says Jim Flynn, CEO of SICOM. “We value our strong relationship with the Burger King brand and its dedication, like SICOM, to care for its employees.”
