OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — In March, Raising Cane's locations in Lincoln, Grand Island, Norfolk, Kearney, Fremont and North Platte held a fundraising event to support victims of flooding.

Today the group donated nearly $8,000 to flood relief efforts across Nebraska. To do so, Raising Cane's officials met with with Salvation Army Captain Stephen Hansen to present a check for over $7,950.

“The outpouring of support from our restaurants’ communities is truly amazing.” said Jennifer Jones, Co-Owner of the Raising Cane’s franchise. “A huge thank you to everyone who was able to dine at our restaurants, and to everyone who dropped off supplies during the week. Having lived through Hurricane Katrina, we know what these families and communities are going through, and it’s when we see the support that’s happening across the state, that we know we’ll make it through this.” she continued.

Raising Cane's donated 15% of all sales during the fundraising day but also took donations from organizations and individuals across the state.

They say all donated funds, "Will stay in the state of Nebraska to help with the flood relief efforts."
