United States : Captain Morgan parent company Diageo pledges $1 million to hurricane relief in US Virgin Islands.

Captain Morgan parent company Diageo has pledged $1,000,000 to support relief and recovery efforts in the US Virgin Islands as they face an unprecedented storm season. The funds announced are in addition to the $250,000 Diageo and its brands have committed to hurricane relief support over the past month.

The US Virgin Islands has been home to Captain Morgan since we opened our distillery on St. Croix in 2010. As a native of the USVI I am delighted Diageo and the Captain Morgan brand is able to support our community and people in this way, said Cynthia Arnold, Operations Director, Diageo USVI.

Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett commented, Diageos contribution toward the rebuilding efforts in the USVI will be a strong infusion of support for hurting Americans and devastated islands. I am grateful for Diageos commitment to partnership in the Virgin Islands. I look forward to continuing to work with Diageo team members and other generous partners as we all collaborate to rebuild our US Virgin Islands as we persevere through a destructive hurricane season.
