Carmichael, CA (MPG) - Weeks after Hurricane Harvey rolled into Texas, causing destruction and death, assistance is still coming in. Nearly 2000 miles away, the Carmichael Chamber of Commerce wanted to help those devastated by the storms.

Executive Director Linda Melody contacted businesses in Milagro Centre and other Chamber restaurants to see if they would be willing to donate a portion of their proceeds from their sales on Tuesday, September 5. Calling it Carmichael Cares, more than a dozen businesses agreed to help, even though some were just getting started. Thank you to all who participated: Fish Face Poke; Ghiotto Gelato; Insight Coffee; Jaynee Cakes; Mesa Mercado; River City Brewing Company; The Patriot; Carmichael Cage & Deli; Garcia’s Mexican Restaurant; La Bou Bakery & Café; Lido Café; Roma’s Pizza & Pasta; Roxie Deli & Barbecue, and Togo’s.

A total of $2,771.04 was raised. Thank you to everyone who came out to these businesses to help with the fundraiser. Proceeds went to the American Red Cross for the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.  “Seeing all these businesses agree to help was thrilling,” says Chamber Executive Director Linda Melody. “Even to have a small part in helping hurricane victims is important, because Carmichael Cares.”
