Giving Starts At Home Fundraiser Exceeds Expectations

Five years ago, Rockland husband and wife restaurateur team James Hatch and Susan Schiro implemented a yearly fundraiser called “ Giving Starts At Home.” Their goal was to give back to the community where they have lived for the last 25 years. The Giving Starts At Home fundraiser is held the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Customers are enticed to make five dollar donations to benefit two nonprofits that are chosen by the restaurant.

“The amount of money raised is greatly dependent on the commitment of our wait staff because they have the most interaction with patrons,” explained Schiro. “We have an amazing staff and this year they put us over the top and helped raise $4,601 which is double last year’s total.”
