Hurricane Harvey the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since 2005, devastated much of Texas and Louisiana as well as parts of Mexico and the Caribbean. The storm has resulted in at least 71 confirmed deaths and over $70 billion in damage. As we know from Kauai’s experience with Hurricane Iniki, the recovery process will take a long time.
One way to help out is by eating at CPK anytime on Tuesday, September 12th (today!). Twenty percent of food and beverage sales made throughout the day at nationwide CPK locations will be donated to Feeding Texas, which is helping with the relief efforts.
(In case you’re wondering, ‘Aiea Hongwanji’s preschool was going to hold its fundraiser today at CPK Pearlridge. However, in solidarity with the victims of Harvey, the preschool has decided to donate whatever funds it makes from its fundraiser toward CPK’s Harvey relief efforts. Thank you, ‘Aiea Hongwanji preschool, for your generosity!)
