Paramedic John Mackey died November 10, after being hit by a car while checking some minor damage on his ambulance.

“He helped people on a day-to-day basis and a lot of his job probably went un-thanked so that’s something we definitely want to try to do,” said Brian Murrell, general manager of Raising Cane’s.
Monday, November 16th the restaurant is donating 15% of all sales to the Mackey family. The fundraiser will last the entire day. The restaurant is located at 551 Keene Centre Drive.
