Award-Winning Neighborhood Bar Supports Non-Profit Organization’s Efforts to Build Six New Homes in Carver Heights East Neighborhood by Providing Meal Donations for Five Days of Week-Long Event
Addison, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Award-winning neighborhood bar, Bar Louie, today announced that it will be donating five days of lunches to 200+ local volunteers participating in Trinity Habitat for Humanity’s semi-annual ‘Blitz Build’ house-building event in Fort Worth, Texas in September.
Designed to ‘fast-track’ home-building efforts by constructing six homes over an accelerated timeframe, Bar Louie will provide lunch to the volunteers on numerous dates throughout the event concluding on September 22, 2018.
“At Bar Louie, our team members have a huge passion for community involvement,” said Bar Louie Director of Operations North Texas, Diana Mather. “Trinity Habitat for Humanity is an incredible organization doing meaningful work—and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to help them with their important home-building effort.”
“This donation represents an incredibly generous gift by Bar Louie to help support our work and volunteers,” said Trinity Habitat for Humanity Senior Director of Operations, Michelle Kennedy. “We look forward to enjoying their delicious meals as much-needed sustenance while we work toward providing a hand-up to our future homeowners.”
Currently Bar Louie has 13 locations in Texas, including seven locations across the Dallas-Fort Worth area. During the Blitz Build, all seven will be cooking and delivering food to volunteers.
Trinity Habitat for Humanity partners with people in the Fort Worth community to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and then pay an affordable mortgage. With volunteers’ support, Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability, and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and for their families.
This September’s ‘Blitz Build’ is in the Carver Heights East neighborhood of Fort Worth, where Trinity Habitat has built 19 new homes and rehabilitated an additional six since 2015—with the goal of building 40-60 new homes by 2021. Trinity Habitat for Humanity’s goal in the community is to create an influx of empowered homeowners reviving the neighborhood.
Louie Loves is a decade-long program for Dallas-based Bar Louie, built to support local communities in times of need. As Bar Louie’s fundraising program, it is tailored specifically to restaurant locations and their surrounding communities, with past recipients including the Red Cross.
