Now through Oct. 31, Lincoln Raising Cane’s restaurants are collecting new and gently used winter coats. All donated coats will be given to those in need at the People’s City Mission and Help Center.
This is the 12th year the Raising Cane’s franchise—Southern Hospitality Ventures—has held a winter coat drive at its restaurants. Since 2007, over 18,600 winter coats have been donated to those in need in the restaurants’ communities.
“When we moved to the Midwest from Louisiana to open our first Raising Cane’s, we quickly learned how harsh the winter could be,” says Jennifer Jones, co-owner of the Raising Cane’s franchise. “Not everyone is so fortunate to be able to go out and purchase a winter coat, which is why we created Raising Coats with Raising Cane’s. We hope that you’ll support our efforts by donating a coat and making winter a little warmer for others this year.”
Individuals who donate coats will receive a free Combo meal of equal or lesser value with the purchase of another Combo.
The coat drive is taking place at all Raising Cane's Lincoln locations: 48th and R streets, 28th and Cornhusker Highway, 58th and Old Cheney Road, and 14th and P streets.
