We Thank Harvey's Heroes

We hardly have words to describe how moved we’ve been by the love and support Texas is receiving in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Thank you to those involved in the relief efforts.

One of the worst storms in U.S. history, Harvey has displaced more than 30,000 people from their homes. More than 10,000—and counting—have been rescued. In the midst of all the destruction, we’ve been blessed by the support of first responders from across the country.

We’re overwhelmed with gratitude for them.

Over the last week, news and social media have been inundated with heartbreaking images. But for every sad photo, we’ve seen a heartwarming story of a heroic rescue.

To the Good Samaritans who’ve worked to save our brothers and sisters and the four-legged friends we dare not part with, thank you. You’ve worked long hours, often without a break, to ensure the safety of our communities. You’re risking your own lives to save the lives of others.

The storm isn’t over, but all of us at Whataburger want you to know we’re here for you, and we’ll weather this together.
