Raising Cane’s is holding a fundraiser to support local communities in Louisiana and Texas impacted by Hurricane Laura.

The company says that the fundraiser will be on Tuesday, Sept. 22, and hopes to raise at least $100,000.

Raising Cane's says that from open to close, participating restaurants in 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.

“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 & 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.”
