Restaurant/bar group donates $7,500 to 2 local charities
The Prescott Area Independents (PAI) restaurant and bar organization recently raised $7,500 for two local nonprofits that provide food and other provisions to those in need. Leff-T's Steakhouse owner Daryl Davis presented checks to the Prescott Community Cupboard and the Coalition for Compassion & Justice Wednesday night during a PAI mixer held at the Prescott Brewing Company.
The Prescott Community Cupboard was founded in 1976 and is a coalition of eight churches that provides food for 500 people a month.
The CCJ Open Door Program serves veterans and the homeless, and guides people to self-sufficiency. The organization serves meals Tuesdays through Fridays, and provides food boxes, prescription medications, laundry vouchers and shelter.
