BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD)- Raising Cane’s raised over $95,000 dollars during a fundraiser which will now go back to states who are dealing with back-to back disasters this Hurricane Season.
“Raising Cane’s has been through more than our fair share of hurricanes and other natural disasters, so we know how devastating these events can be on families, businesses and entire communities,” Raising Cane’s Regional Vice President of Operations, Matt Massey said. “We started making plans for this fundraiser shortly after Hurricane Laura, but before we knew it, Hurricane Sally was upon us. So many people came together to make this $100,000 donation possible, starting with thousands of Caniacs across the region, as well as several business partners and generous media influencers.”
The money will go directly to hurricane relief agencies.
“When we need them the most, we can count on Raising Cane’s to come through in a big way,” said Joshua Joachim, Regional CEO of the Red Cross. “Having taken back-to-back hits from Laura and Sally, and with two months left in a very active hurricane season, this donation is especially meaningful. Families across the region are desperate for help, and thanks to everyone involved, we can be there for them in their darkest hours.”
