Do you think you might feel more compassion for the communities surrounding Houston than the current President of the United States? Trick question! Of course you do!
And some of your favorite restaurant owners feel the same way, which is why they’re donating proceeds to various charities that are looking out for Hurricane Harvey’s flood victims in the upcoming days.
Tonight, both Le Pigeon and Little Bird Bistro will donate five percent of the day’s proceeds to the United Way of Greater Houston, which will look after the needs of the people who’ve been displaced by the historic storm.
And from Saturday, September 2 to Monday, September 4, Troy McLarty’s two Bollywood Theater locations will each donate 10 percent of those days’ sales to charitable organizations helping out those affected by the hurricane.
And that’s not all. Right now, Eater PDX has a frequently updated list of other local restaurants donating proceeds to charities looking out for Houston-area residents, including Stella Taco, Pastrami Zombie, Gladstone Street Pizza, White Owl Social Club and all of Earl Ninsom and BJ Smith’s Thai, barbecue and Korean-barbecue locations.
And it doesn’t end there. On Sunday, October 22, the Californian-based Lagunitas Community Room (237 NE Broadway) is teaming up with Ned Ludd, Stella Taco and Le Pigeon and Little Bird to raise funds—and awareness of—iACT, which assists refugees in Chad and Central Africa.
Write it in your diary and show up to at least one of these venues.
