Texas Roadhouse donates food to Family Life Center, adds veterans parking
The staff of the yet-to-open Texas Roadhouse at 1298 Palm Coast Parkway Southwest, still in training for their upcoming opening, donated several containers of food to the residents of the Family Life Center's emergency domestic abuse shelter for dinner Dec. 2.
Texas Roadhouse has also added two veterans-only parking spaces. Some local veteran advocates have been pushing for more local establishments to add such spaces as a way of honoring former service members. Certain county facilities, such as the Flagler County Public Library branch in Palm Coast, added veterans-only spaces in November.
Ladies of Hidden Lakes donate to AdventHealth Palm Coast's cancer fund
On Nov. 20, the Ladies of Hidden Lakes, a close-knit group of neighbors from the Hidden Lakes community in Palm Coast, donated over $500 to support AdventHealth Palm Coast’s fight against cancer.
The group teamed up with local home accessories store Chez Jacqueline to host a fashion show to raise money for the AdventHealth Palm Coast Foundation cancer care fund.
The proceeds will be used to provide education and screenings for cancer.
“We always value and appreciate the support of our community members,” said John Subers, AdventHealth Palm Coast Foundation director. “Their philanthropic dollars continue to enhance the services we provide to those in need.”
The ceremonial check presentation also included a tour of the cancer center at AdventHealth Palm Coast.
