What and Who is Restaurants Respond?

Restaurants Respond: El Paso, Midland, and Odessa refers to the giving and fundraising events put on by the foodservice industry to benefit the El Paso, Midland, and Odessa shooting victims and their families, including restaurant employees in the affected region.

There is no Restaurants Respond organization. It is simply a group of associations, restaurants, foodservice companies, and their employees and guests from across the country united in the effort to help those affected by catastrophic national events.

How can I help with the Restaurants Respond effort?

Join our conversation on social media using #RestaurantsRespond where we are tracking numerous restaurants and foodservice businesses across the country who are donating to the El Paso family recovery efforts. 

Every donation makes a meaningful difference, but our chosen charities have asked us not to send in cash donations. Please combine the cash donations and write a check for that amount payable to the charity or charities . 

What should we do with any cash donations we receive?
