“Given that most of us will enjoy a bountiful meal with friends and family on Thanksgiving, there is no better recipient of the proceeds on this special day. The reality is there are many in our community who are not as fortunate and we are hoping this will help our neighbors in need,” said Adam Bajko, manager, Chip’s Family Restaurant, Fairfield.

“This is a wonderful way to start a holiday that is all about family, friends and food. We encourage all our neighbors to join us, and while we are feasting, please know that we are directly helping those most in need in our community,” said Michael Fucigna, Operation Hope board chair.
