on the Sea­son for Car­ing day and give a P. Terry’s burger a try. While that’s good for busi­ness, Pa­trick Terry says, “It’s all about the char­ity. … We are very for­tu­nate. This town has been very kind to us. We have to give some­thing back.”

Each year, P. Terry’s des­ig­nates a day each quar­ter to do­nate its prof­its to a dif­fer­ent agency.

This spirit of giv­ing has rubbed off on em­ploy­ees. Re­cently, em­ploy­ees de­cided to col­lect money to buy presents for res­i­den­tial child care agency Help­ing Hand Home, which will de­liver the gifts on Christ­mas Eve.

Eat­ing at P. Terry’s on Satur­day is just one of the way read­ers are giv­ing. Some are hold­ing bake sales, some are clean­ing out clos­ets, some are col­lect­ing money at work or ask­ing their hol­i­day party guests to give.

More do­na­tions, es­pe­cially mon­e­tary do­na­tions, are needed. To make a do­na­tion on­line, go to states­man.com/sea­son­for­car­ing or find a do­na­tion coupon daily in the States­man.

Elias Molino pushes a cart of pota­toes at the orig­i­nal P. Terry’s Burger Stand on South La­mar on Satur­day, which was the Cen­tral Texas chain’s Sea­son for Car­ing Day. The stores typ­i­cally get cus­tomers that day who eat there be­cause they want to give to char­ity. The day’s prof­its went to the Sea­son for Car­ing drive.
