Did you know you can support a fantastic organization in our community just by eating? Does it sound too good to be true? The second Monday of each month marks the Dine and Donate promotion for Aid to Distressed Families of Appalachian Counties, or ADFAC. Several area restaurants have pledged to donate a portion of their sales for the day to support ADFAC’s important programs to promote self-sustainability for families in our area, a press release said.
The featured restaurant for March is Gallo Loco Mexican restaurant at 80 East Tennessee Avenue in Oak Ridge. The press release said this cozy Mexican restaurant is regularly mentioned as a favorite by locals, and their friendly atmosphere can’t be beat! Stop by on Monday, March 12, and find out for yourself why this spot will become one of your favorites, too!
Other restaurants supporting ADFAC on Monday, and each month, are Burchfield’s, Dean’s, Hoskins, Mediterranean Delight, Outback Steakhouse, Razzleberry’s, Soup Kitchen, Subway locations in Clinton (both), west Oak Ridge (1968 Oak Ridge Turnpike), Oliver Springs, and Rocky Top. So many tasty opportunities to support a valued organization in our community!
Several business and media sponsors have also stepped up to support Dine & Donate 2018, including Oak Ridge Today, Leidos, CNS, UT-Battelle, and Randy Mcfarland—State Farm Agent.
ADFAC is an independent nonprofit agency established in 1987, and it 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 its Social Services and Affordable Housing programs. ADFAC answers more than 6,000 requests for assistance each year.
