With daily temperatures averaging around 90, we could all use some relief from the heat. Why not treat yourself to a feel-good meal?
On Monday, July 14, five local restaurants will donate a portion of their sales to support Aid to Distressed Families of Appalachian Counties, or ADFAC.
Officially launched last October, “Dine and Donate” is a year-long event, with different restaurants participating on the second Monday of each month. Monday’s participating restaurants are:
- Hoskins in Clinton,
- Papa Murphy’s in Oak Ridge (please use the register marked for ADFAC),
- Razzleberry’s in Oak Ridge,
- Riverview Grill in Clinton, and
- Subway in Clinton (both), Lake City, Oak Ridge (Four Oaks Center), and Oliver Springs.
“By enjoying a meal at one or more of these restaurants on July 14, you are helping ADFAC provide essential services to thousands of struggling families in our community,” said Cande Seay, ADFAC Board Member and Dine and Donate chair.
ADFAC, an independent nonprofit agency established in 1987, exists to serve the basic needs of primarily low-income residents in Anderson and surrounding Appalachian counties. ADFAC’s goal is to help families become stable and self-sufficient through a variety of direct assistance services provided by our Social Services and Affordable Housing programs. ADFAC answers more than 6,000 requests for assistance each year.
