There are thousands of donation campaigns throughout the country that seek to help those who have been affected by these natural disasters. At the forefront of this cause are restaurants.

Many restaurants are donating, tips and a percentage of sales, as well as sending food to victims. Let’s take a closer look at how some restaurants are making an impact in their communities.

Cane Rosso launched a pizza raffle with all of the proceeds going towards helping people who were affected by Hurricane Harvey. Raffle participants are entered into a drawing to win an entire year of free pizza.
