This Thursday, March 5, 2009 hundreds of restaurants all over the DC area will be participating in a very important fundraiser: Dining out for Life. On March 5th, more than 150 restaurants in the Washington metropolitan area will donate a portion of their proceeds from 25-100% to Food & Friends.
Food & Friends helps people with AIDS, cancer and other life threatening illnesses by providing nutritious food delivered right to their door. In addition to providing meals, they also provide groceries and nutrition counseling. Food & Friends is the only nonprofit organization in the Washington, DC, region providing these services.
Since 1988, they have provided this service to all who need it free of charge! However, in these trying economic times, when needs are even greater than usual, their ability to provide service to all is becoming more difficult. This year they had their first ever waiting list.
Simply by dining out, you will ensure that thousands of individuals facing HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses, in the DC area will receive the daily, nutritious meals so vital to their care.
So please click on the link and take a look at the restaurants participating. Pick one and dine out so that others may get help from this great organization!
Dining Out for Life is a true expression of how a community can join forces to save the lives of their neighbors. Choose a restaurant and invite your friends today!
