For a limited time, food purchases at select area restaurants will help raise money for the Pine Strawberry School. During the next month, simply tell the restaurant you are ordering for the school’s fund, and they will know what to do.
A percentage of the proceeds will go directly into an account for classrooms.
The money will be used for paper, technology, crayons and many basic supplies for children that they may not have next year.
Participating restaurants: Order an omelet on Monday at Nifty 50’s, or a large pizza any day at Uncle Tom’s. Order a lunch special on a Thursday at Rimside Grill, or feed a family of four for $29.99 at Strawberry Lodge during their Thursday’s Family Pasta Night. The meal includes salad and garlic bread with pasta and meatballs.
Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Pine Deli, order fish tacos. Two tacos with three sides costs $6.50.
The Randall House, which is now open for lunch and dinner on Saturdays, will donate a dollar for every burger ordered that day.
