Hurricane Victim Gives Back to Flooded Communities
Grab the Gold partnered with Feeding Texas and Second Harvest Food Bank to freight the snack bars and peanut butter, valued at $142,000, to Texas and Florida hurricane victims.
The recent hurricane events hit close to home for CEO and founder Danielle Ontiveros who lost her home from Hurricane Katrina in 2005. She says, “After losing everything to Katrina, I remember how helpless, empty and confused I felt. To have a home one day and nothing the next day – it’s almost impossible to put that feeling into words. It’s a hard reality to accept. I know exactly how our friends in Texas and Florida feel. I am so thankful to be in a place over 10 years later to be able to give back like so many others did for us in New Orleans.“
After Hurricane Katrina decimated New Orleans, Ontiveros relocated Grab The Gold to Tennessee after receiving an outpouring of love and support from the customers and community in the Nashville area. Grab The Gold’s success can be attributed to supportive people with big hearts who care.
Ontiveros says, “We have been so blessed to rebuild in Middle Tennessee. To honor the people who helped me relocate and rebuild, I am happy to provide this donation of healthy food and give back to those in need.”
Grab The Gold donates a portion of every purchase to provide food and meals in Tennessee for kids to senior citizens in need. Ontiveros shares, “As a small woman-owned business, the ideal of caring for others as friends, neighbors and family is part of who I am. Less than 2 months ago, we were able to donate $10,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank. We all need a purpose, and business without meaning will leave you empty. It fills my heart with joy to give.”
