“We know how difficult it is for a lot of families this year, so we wanted to be sure to give back,” said co-owner of Views Bar and Grill Darius Statum. “This is something we will continue to do for our community, to show them the kind of support they’ve shown us over the years.”

The goal for Views Bar and Grill is to provide groceries for at least 1,000 families.

“Every year, we make it our mission to leave an impact on the community,” said co-owner of Views Bar and Grill Brian Sullivan. “With the economy, many families struggle to make ends meet, so we want to be as supportive as possible.”
