DALLAS In honor of Veterans Day, Raising Cane’s will donate $250,000 of net proceeds on Saturday to Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), an organization dedicated to meeting the growing needs of wounded veterans, their families, and caregivers. Since WWP’s inception in 2003, its mission has been to honor and empower wounded warriors who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound on or after Sept. 11, 2001.
The fundraiser will take place at all U.S. Raising Cane’s restaurants.
“Supporters like Raising Cane’s allow Wounded Warrior Project to meet the growing needs of injured veterans and their loved ones throughout their lifetime,” WWP vice president of business development Brea Kratzert Todd said in a news release. “We’re grateful to Raising Cane’s and their customers for joining our mission to honor and empower those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.”
WWP is transforming the way America’s injured veterans are empowered, employed, and engaged in their communities. The organization’s direct programs in mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitative care have improved the lives of millions of warriors and their families for 20 years.
“Raising Cane’s is proud to honor our nation’s veterans, and we take our hats off to you and your families for your unwavering courage, dedication and sacrifice in protecting our country and freedom,” said Raising Cane’s founder Todd Graves. “This Veterans Day, we invite everyone to join us in our Restaurants as we raise $250,000 to support Wounded Warrior Project and the great work this organization does.”
