The Coop and 4Rivers Smokehouse are hosting a benefit Sunday supporting those devastated by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.

“As Floridians, we know all too well the destruction hurricanes can cause and it saddens us to see the devastation caused in the Bahamas by Dorian,” said John Rivers, founder and CEO of both restaurants, said in a prepared statement.

4 Rivers Smokehouse will serve up food at its locations from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and is offering to-go and online orders, too.

The Coop will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is serving breakfast all day.

The restaurants are usually closed on Sunday, but will sometimes open for charity events, like the chain did in 2016, following the Pulse nightclub shooting.

4Rivers' downtown Orlando location will stay closed on Sunday. Here's a list of the Central Florida locations that will be opening for the benefit:
