Hy-Vee Sends Disaster Fleet To Florida For Hurricane Relief


Hy-Vee has deployed its Disaster Relief Fleet to locations in Florida impacted by Hurricane Ian. Two caravans will be departing.

The first caravan of Hy-Vee employees departed the morning of Sept. 30 from the Hy-Vee Fresh Commissary, located at 4150 SE Delaware in Ankeny, Iowa, in several of the company’s response vehicles.

The first group will take the company’s mobile command center, mobile water system (which includes a tank and pump trailer) and its rapid response pickup truck. The second group will depart Oct. 1 from Hy-Vee’s Chariton Distribution Center with nine semi trucks filled with water, ice, snacks, cleaning supplies and protein donated by Hormel Foods.

The company’s disaster relief team is working with local emergency operations centers and nonprofits to assist with recovery efforts in Port Charlotte and Bradenton, Florida. More than 20 of its employees have volunteered to take part in the effort.

The team will also be working with Operation BBQ Relief to help provide up to 1 million meals to those responding to the disaster, as well as impacted residents.

The grocer also mobilized its Disaster Recovery Fleet in December to aid tornado victims in Tennessee and Kentucky. To read the full story presented by The Shelby Report, click here.
