Burgerville donates food to essential workers

The Columbian

HOUGH — Burgerville recently donated 4,500 cheeseburgers to frontline workers at hospitals, grocery stores, police and fire stations, and other essential businesses. Called the “Burger Break Brigade,” the effort was started to help essential workers who may be too busy for a full mealtime during their shifts during the novel coronavirus pandemic. Customers are also able to buy a burger to donate to an essential worker. Customers can join the Burger Break Brigade when they buy a Community Built Burger for donation. Burgerville will double-match the donation. Customers can also give cash donations for future Burger Break drop-offs. Both options will be available through any of the Burgerville drive-thrus or through the Burgerville ordering app. Community organizations and partners can request Burger Breaks by going to “Our hearts go out to the medical and emergency workers fighting this pandemic,” Burgerville CEO Jill Taylor, who was a pediatric nurse at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital before going into business, said in a news release. “We know people want to support people providing essential services, they just don’t know how.”
