Raising Canes in Louisiana and SE Texas Donating Portion of Sales Today to Disaster Recovery
Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers is hosting a fundraiser today to support communities across Louisiana and Texas impacted by Hurricane Laura. The goal is to raise at least $100,000.
From open to close today (9/22/20), Raising Cane's Restaurants across Louisiana and Southeastern Texas will donate 15% of the day's sales to local American Red Cross chapters and SBP, a Louisiana-based disaster resilience and recovery organization whose mission is to shrink the time between disaster and recovery.
“I opened our first restaurant in Louisiana, so we know firsthand how devastating a hurricane can be and how long it takes for a community to get back on its feet,” said Raising Cane’s Founder and Co-CEO Todd Graves.
“At Raising Cane’s, we aren’t just a restaurant, we are a part of each of the communities we serve. Part of that commitment is to be actively engaged, however possible, and this is one of those times. To make sure our fundraiser makes a difference in these communities, we are raising funds for the American Red Cross and SBP. Both of these organizations are doing great work to aid these communities and we are proud to support their efforts.”
Today's fundraiser is just the latest way Raising Cane's is actively supporting its crew and communities. Over the last several months, the company has donated thousands of chicken finger meals to frontline healthcare workers and raised more than $500,000 for local healthcare organizations.
“I couldn’t be more proud to tell people I work at Raising Cane’s in Sulphur, Louisiana,” said Restaurant Partner Jerry Goza. “At Cane’s it’s not talk, we actively support our communities and partner to be there in good times and the bad. My hometown and many others have been devastated by Hurricane Laura, but we’ll come back stronger. It’s awesome to work for a company that truly cares and is there for us.”
