Locally owned and operated Angry Crab Shack, a restaurant specializing in seafood boils with Asian-Cajun flavors and signature sauces, raised $50,125 in July for its You Dine We Donate month-long promotion benefiting the Arizona Housing Coalition. The local nonprofit aids and provides resources to homeless veterans and their families, which includes clothing, hot meals, haircuts, hygiene items and a variety of other services.
“In our organization, one of the main priorities is giving back to the community that has been very supportive of us over the years and throughout our growth,” said Andy Diamond, CFO of Angry Crab Shack. “We are thankful to our guests for supporting our mission and aiding our communities. Knowing that Angry Crab Shack can make a small impact means the world to us.”
Angry Crab Shack has been partners with the Arizona Housing Coalition for five years and has raised more than $140,664 to date with the You Dine We Donate program. For the full month of July, every diner that entered one of the twelve locations statewide helped raise money for the organization. All the proceeds from the sale of Angry Crab Shack merchandise were also donated.
“We couldn’t provide the work that we do without the generous donations from Angry Crab Shack,” said Joan Serviss, executive director at Arizona Housing Coalition. “The donations go toward clothing, food, hygiene products and more. Some of the services it benefits include legal, housing, Motor Vehicle Department and The Department of Economic Security.”
Angry Crab Shack has twelve locations throughout Arizona and offers fresh, top quality taste at an affordable price point, sourcing lobster from the East Coast, Dungeness Crab from the Pacific Northwest, King and Snow Crab from Alaska, and crawfish from the Gulf of Mexico. As part of its community environment, guests enjoy picnic-style eating and are encouraged to leave their mark by writing on the walls before departing.
