SAVANNAH BEE COMPANY DONATES $500 TO RED CROSS DISASTER RELIEF
SAVANNAH, Georgia- Earlier this spring after storms ravaged the South, Savannah Bee Company decided to make a contribution to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts. For the first two weeks in May, Savannah Bee pledged to donate $1 for every website order placed ending this past Friday, May 13. There were 377 web orders placed during those two weeks, but Ted Dennard, owner of Savannah Bee Company, decided to round the donation up to $500.
“I’m only too glad to help our neighbors in the beautiful South rebuild their lives after such a monstrous event,” said Dennard. “Savannah Bee Company would give so much more to this disaster relief if we could.”
Savannah Bee Company believes in giving back whenever possible. Savannah Bee also contributes to Heifer International with our Peace Honey program, the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, and numerous Riverkeepers in the Southeast.
