October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and a local restaurant is giving customers the chance to enjoy a delicious meal and help domestic violence victims at the same time.
Manuel’s Bread Café – located in Hammond’s Ferry at 505 Railroad Avenue, #100 in North Augusta, and Kendrick Paint & Body have teamed up to raise funds for SafeHomes of Augusta. “Our owner, Steve Kendrick Jr., and Manuel (Verney-Carron) from Manuel’s Bread Café are close friends, and they wanted a way to give back to a local organization,” says Carson McLaughlin, Kendrick’s operations and marketing specialist. “Manuel created a signature dish, “The Kendrick,” consisting of a white wine cream sauce, chicken, and shrimp.” For every order of “The Kendrick” throughout October, the restaurant will donate $10 to SafeHomes, and Kendrick will match the total amount of all donations.
Aimee Hall – Executive Vice Director of SafeHomes of Augusta, says donations are critical in helping the organization meet its mission to help domestic violence victims. “Without the generosity of companies, such as Manuel’s and Kendrick, SafeHomes could not continue to provide the services needed or the awareness needed to eradicate domestic violence in our community,” Hall states.
