EASTHAM — Karoo Restaurant will hold a fundraiser for two organizations in Puerto Rico, the Sato Project and World Central Kitchen.

Karoo owner Sanette Greonewald will donate 15 percent of the restaurant’s proceeds from Oct. 18 through Oct. 22. The money will be divided between the two foundations, according to a statement from the restaurant.

The Sato Project focuses primarily on rescuing and rehabilitating abandoned and abused dogs from a beach named Dead Dog Beach in the area of Yabucoa, on the southeastern coast of Puerto Rico. Dogs are cared for and shipped to Newark Liberty International or John F. Kennedy International airports for adoption. To learn more or donate: thesatoproject.org

Karoo also will donate to the World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit organization founded by Jose Andres. It promotes cleaner cooking, kitchens in schools to support feeding programs and culinary training to elevate the hospitality workforce. The World Central Kitchen has been serving people in Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria. The group’s goal is to serve at least 20,000 meals per day in eight kitchens around the country.
