Hurricane Dorian ravaged the Bahamas recently, and it is estimated that more than 50,000 homes were damaged across the entirety of the islands. Other buildings such as schools and hospitals were destroyed.

To help with the recovery efforts, Louisiana-based restaurant chain Raising Cane's has pledged to match every "text-to-give" donation or online donation made to Abaco Outreach powered by SBP through October 15, 2019.

All you have to do is text "Dorian 20" to 501501 to donate $20 or donate any dollar amount online here.

Raising Cane's will match donations up to $100,000.

Donations are tax deductible.

Raising Cane's Founder and CEO Todd Graves said of the efforts, "Being from Louisiana, we know the devastation from hurricanes all too well. Our friends in the Bahamas need our help and Raising Cane's wants to do what we can. We believe in the good work of SBP and Abaco Outreach, and want to support their efforts on the ground in the Bahamas providing immediate support and helping accelerate the recovery.
