Give while you dine –
Local restaurants occasionally partner with Homeless Youth Connection to share a portion of their profits on a given day or days.  So if you dine at their establishments on those days, a portion of your meal’s cost will be donated to HYC.  Some restrictions may apply, so please see our Events page for details on upcoming restaurant promotions and their specific requirements.
