More than 50 local restaurants will donate a portion of their sales on Tuesday, May 12, to the Maple Alley Inn, a program that serves hot meals to those in need.

This is the 15th annual Dine Out for Maple Alley Inn. Previous events have raised more than $22,000.

An increasing number of people are coming to Maple Alley Inn for a hot meal, Opportunity Council spokesperson Sheri Emerson said in a news release. The program serves people who are homeless, mentally ill, poor, aging, disabled veterans, and families with children.
