The grand opening of a new meat store on Bend's north side is also helping the victims in Japan. Owner Shin Nakato is from Japan and wanted to do something to help. He gave away hundreds of burgers and asked people instead to donate to the victims. He raised about $1500. ”Everybody was very giving and kind and sympathetic to what they're going through. We couldn't ask for a better turnout. We really appreciate everybody thinking about the victims and the disaster going on over there.” Nakato plans to raise more money for the victims at his east coast restaurants as well.
