SANTA MARIA, Calif. - A shelter for homeless families in Santa Maria is in the works and is getting help from a Guadalupe restaurant.
Anthony's Sports Bar is donating 8 percent of its profits in May to benefit the Harvest Community Center transitional housing project. The shelter will be built on a piece of land adjacent to Victory Harvest Church, located on North Railroad Avenue in Santa Maria.
"We are incredibly grateful for organizations like Anthony's who believe in our work, who believe that Santa Maria is a great community and can be for everyone,” said Harvest Community Center Assistant Director Mayra Ramos.
The center has been providing food to families in need and programs for kids as well.
“We're working with the kids in the community to provide an opportunity that they can come in and go to the library, go on different field trips after school," said restaurant owner Anthony Burns.
The nonprofit is aiming to raise $100,000. Donations are also accepted on The Harvest Community Center's website.
