Two dozen local restaurants will give part of their sales this week toÂ Aid To Distressed Families of Appalachian Counties, or ADFAC.
It’s called Feed The Need, and it starts Monday and ends Friday. It helpsÂ support ADFACâ€™s 25-year mission of helping local families become more stable and self-sufficient, a press release said.
â€œWe are so excited to have so many restaurants return year after year for this fundraiser,” said Cande Seay, Feed The Need chairperson and ADFAC board member. “And we are thrilled to have so many new restaurants join our Feed The Need family this year.”
The press release said many of the restaurants will be also selling donation cards for $1.
“All donations through Feed The Need will help ADFAC provide the helping hand up to many neighbors in need,” the release said.
A complete schedule for restaurants and their participating days is listed on the ADFAC website at http://www.adfac.org/feedtheneed.html.
ADFAC provides crisis intervention and support services such as rent and utilities help, home repairs, food and pantry items, school supplies for disadvantaged students, counseling, and first-time home buyer programs, the release said.
