Pro*Act, America's leading distributor of fresh produce to the foodservice industry, has raised more than $34,000 through its foundation to help the Red Robin Foundation Aurora Theater Victims Fund.

Red Robin has been a Pro*Act customer since 2007.

Eight team members from the Red Robin unit on Havana Street in Aurora, Colorado, were in the Aurora theater at the time of the recent shooting. One team member died and seven were hospitalized, some with very serious injuries.

Red Robin Foundation plans to assist team members with medical bills and lost wages, as well as provide support to the family of the deceased.

"We have reached out to our distributors, employees, and supplier partners to help the Pro*Act Foundation make a meaningful contribution to the Red Robin Fund," says Steve Grinstead, CEO of Pro*Act. "We want to help these team members who were so horribly affected by this senseless act of violence."
