ST. LOUIS, Aug. 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- As devastating wildfires continue to burn on Hawaii's Maui and the Big Island, Purina is donating $25,000 to Greater Good Charities to support the global nonprofit's crisis response efforts and provide both immediate and long-term recovery to people and animals in Hawaii.

Dozens of lives have been lost, hundreds of buildings have been destroyed and thousands of people and animals have been displaced in what's being called the state's worst natural disaster in 30 years. Purina's donation will aid Greater Good Charities in providing cash grants for rescue and medical care, pet food, and supplies.
to Hawaiian-based animals rescues and emergency shelters.

"Our hearts go out to the families and pets being affected by these wildfires, and to the communities that are experiencing such a catastrophic loss" said Kim Beardslee, Director of Community Affairs at Purina. "We have a long history of coming to the aid people and pets when disaster strikes, and we will continue working with our partners to provide support however we can."

Purina donates more than $30 million annually in monetary grants, Purina pet food and cat litter to support nonprofit organizations that help bring and keep people and pets together, as well as supports relief efforts in the wake of natural disasters.

"Greater Good Charities is currently mobilizing to help the people and pets in the communities impacted by the tragic Maui wildfires by providing immediate support and solutions to aid in the island's long-term recovery," said Liz Baker, CEO of Greater Good Charities.
