Christmas Day is the last day to order T-shirts and sweatshirts to support the Spokane Cooks for Puerto Rico fundraiser started by chef Jeremy Hansen.

Hansen traveled to Puerto Rico at the end of October and spent a month cooking meals for people in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

The hurricane made landfall Sept. 20, knocking out power to the island’s 3.4 million residents. Parts of the island remain without power.

Hansen helped prepare and serve more than 25,000 meals for victims of Hurricane Maria with support of chef José Andreas’ World Central Kitchen as well as Spokane donors. He remained in Puerto Rico until Nov. 22, returning in time for Thanksgiving.

He plans to return in January and spend most of the first month of the year in the U.S. territory. Funds raised from the T-shirts and sweatshirts will help support that trip and other charity work, Hansen said.

Hansen and his wife, Kate, own and operate Santé Restaurant and Charcuterie, Inland Pacific Kitchen, Biscuit Wizard, Common Crumb Bakery and Hogwash Whiskey Den, all in downtown Spokane.
