The largest Arby's franchisee has started a fundraising effort to aid victims of Hurricane Harvey.

United States Beef Corporation, which is headquartered in Tulsa, says it will donate 10 percent of all brisket sandwich sales through September 10, 2017 to the American Red Cross relief effort. 

The company says the proceeds donated from these sales should generate approximately $50,000 for the relief effort.

“This hurricane has been historic in the damage and devastation it has unleashed on our neighbors to the south, and we are eager to support the relief efforts and do our part in assisting the American Red Cross in rebuilding and aiding so many communities impacted by this deluge. Arby’s smoked briskets come from a smokehouse in Texas, and that’s why we selected those sandwiches for this fundraiser,” says John Davis, Chief Executive Officer of US Beef.

US Beef owns 356 restaurants, located in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, and Washington.
