Thirteen local restaurants are donating a portion of their sales to Aid to Distressed Families of Appalachian Counties on Monday.
“The weather is finally warming up, so come enjoy any of the restaurants’ outdoor seating, or maybe even get a meal to go for a picnic,” a press release said.
The featured restaurant for May is Hoskins restaurant at 111 North Main Street in Clinton.
“This staple of the Clinton community has long been a supporter of worthwhile causes in our area, and ADFAC is thrilled they have chosen to work with them as well!” the press release said.
Several business and media sponsors have also stepped up to support Dine and Donate in 2018, including Oak Ridge Today, Leidos, CNS, UT-Battelle, and Randy Mcfarland – State Farm Agent, the press release said.
Aid to Distressed Families of Appalachian Counties (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 its Social Services and Affordable Housing programs. ADFAC answers more than 6,000 requests for assistance each year.
Other restaurants supporting ADFAC each month are Burchfield’s, Dean’s, Gallo Loco, 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!” the press release said.
