Chipotle Mexican Grill donated $380,000 to the United Way’s California wildfire recovery efforts after hosting a fundraiser in late November. Malibu’s Chipotle was among the 154 participating locations in the Sacramento and Los Angeles area. 

Altogether, more than 75,000 individuals supported the fundraiser. 

Donated funds to local United Ways are fueling interim- and long-term recovery assistance to residents affected by the fires in Northern and Southern California. 

The $380,000 amount was part of $1.4 million that Chipotle has donated since 2017 to help United Way rebuild communities after natural disasters. The business previously donated to United Way relief efforts for the Mexico earthquake, hurricanes Harvey and Irma in 2017, and Hurricane Florence in 2018.

Chipotle also donated meals to volunteers at the Emergency Operation Center at the American Red Cross of Los Angeles.
