As the COVID-19 pandemic takes its toll on Broward county, along with the rest of the world, the United Way sent out a request for community support through these times. With this, Tabacalera USA along with it’s associates such as Altadis U.S.A., JR Cigar and Casa de Montecristo came together to answer the request and donate $50,000 to the Broward community.
“We share United Way of Broward County’s concerns – and, indeed, a concern shared around the world – regarding COVID-19,” said Javier Estades, CEO of Fort Lauderdale-based Tabacalera USA. “Our contribution to the United Way of Broward County’s virus relief fund is one small way we can help our community as we focus on the safety of our employees, customers and the broader community.”
“We urge everyone who can to join in this effort,” he said. “We also remind our fellow citizens to follow the guidance of local, state and federal officials concerning best practices to prevent the spread of this virus.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with our neighbors here in our own community and everywhere around the world who have been impacted by this pandemic,” Estades said.
