If you have been anywhere a TV, phone, or computer in the last few weeks, it has been hard to escape the news about the devastation in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria swept through the area.
Celebrities and civilians alike have joined the cause to give money to Puerto Rico and offer their support. However, some of us can still feel helpless and wonder what we can do to lend a hand. Well, if you are hungry, Connecticut has a solution for you to get involved.
Starting Oct. 21 and continuing through Oct. 28 restaurants from around will be serving Puerto Rican-inspired dishes as a part of CT loves PR’s campaign to raise donations for Puerto Rico. Restaurants had to confirm their participation by Oct. 13.
So far, nearly 60 restaurants, vendors and food trucks from around Connecticut have decided to take part in the week-long fundraiser. Some restaurants include Caseus, First and Last Tavern Plainville, G-Zen 100% Vegan and Organic Restaurant, and Geronimo Tequila Bar & Southwest Grill.
When you eat the Puerto Rican-inspired dish at any of the participating restaurants, 100 percent of the proceeds will go Unidos por Puerto Rico / United for Puerto Rico.
