Now that Halloween's sugar-satiated stupor is safely behind us, nippy November turns our thoughts to the holiday season to come. Thanksgiving kicks off a flurry of festivities involving friends, family, and gift-giving, but it's no secret that, especially in today's unstable economic climate, the indulgences enjoyed by some are increasingly out of reach for others. Esquared Hospitality and BLT Steak restaurant are aware of those in need, and have teamed up with Toys for Tots, the nonprofit organization famous for its dedication to helping economically-disadvantaged children throughout the country get what they wish for on Christmas morning.
From Nov. 1 thorough Dec. 14, BLT Steak Charlotte (110 N. College St.) will be accepting donations to help support the charity.
Guests who visit BLT Steak and donate a new, unwrapped toy will receive a complimentary dessert with their entrée in gratitude of their support.
Partner and President of ESquared Hospitality, Keith Treyball, stated his enthusiasm for the project:
We are very excited to be working with Toys for Tots. Mission to mission, ESquared Hospitality and Toys for Tots are a perfect match. “As a company, we believe in giving back and supporting the local communities in which we operate. Children are our nation’s most valuable resource, and it is our privilege to assist Toys for Tots in their efforts by serving as a platform to unite communities together for a better future for our children and for all.
