LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - The Healing Place, a nonprofit addiction recovery center, has teamed up with local restaurants every year and takes a portion of their proceeds to support its free services; this year, the group will do the opposite.
Because restaurants have been hard hit by the pandemic, The Healing Place will encourage its alumni and supporters to eat out at local restaurants and will not take a portion of the proceeds this year.
“A lot of the other restaurants participating help support our alumni and employ our alumni and give them a second chance, so we want to do everything we can to help the restaurants and the local community,” Keenan Long, the Healing Place’s gift officer said.
One of the restaurants participating is Mama’s BBQ.
Waitress Renee Mitchell told WAVE 3 News she is thankful for all of the customers who supported the business during the peak of the pandemic.
“All of our shifts were cut,” Mitchell said. “Us as servers, we’re used to having money every day, and then with that being cut and just having to do to-go’s, we had to adjust to that as well.”
