Longhorn Steak House- Hamilton Marketplace
“When I heard about an opportunity to help distribute baskets for families in need on Thanksgiving Day I knew our team here at Hamilton Marketplace would want to participate. Capitol County Children's Collaborative believes that effective community centered service and support provides positive growth and development within our local families, especially the children.
Our staff raised over $300 and personally shopped for the food and had fun doing it!
We shopped for traditional Thanksgiving meal items that helped fill 100 baskets to families in need on Thanksgiving.
It was more than just donating food, we actually knew the food would be part of someone's special Thanksgiving meal that they may not have had otherwise.
I am very proud of our staff here at Longhorn Steakhouse and we thank Capitol County Children's Collaborative for what they do every day for our local families and children!”
David Gross, Managing Partner Longhorn Steakhouse #5256
May the Holiday Season bring only happiness and joy to you and your loved ones.
Wishing you and your loved ones peace, health, happiness, and prosperity in the coming New Year.
