LAPLACE – Hurricane Dorian has taken a catastrophic toll on the Bahamas, so Raising Cane’s is mobilizing to help aid in the recovery efforts.

Initial estimates indicate that more than 50,000 homes were damaged across several of the islands. Likewise, other buildings such as schools and hospitals were destroyed.

To help the post-disaster recovery efforts, Raising Cane’s has pledged to match every “text-to-give” donation or online donation made to Abaco Outreach powered by SBP through Oct. 15, 2019. Simply text “Dorian20” to 501501 to donate $20 or donate any dollar amount online here and Raising Cane’s will match it up to $100,000. Donations are tax deductible.

Together, Abaco Outreach and SBP are a strong partnership that blends knowledge of the islands with 14 years of experience in post-disaster recovery. Logistics continue to be a challenge across the islands, according to Elizabeth Egle, SBP Chief Development Officer. Generous donors like Raising Cane’s keep the operation moving.
