The generosity of Houston restaurants in the community is never failing and helping those during the holidays is just one more chance to reach out to those in need.
Houston restaurants, Del Frisco’s, Del Frisco’s Grille and Sullivan’s will be donating their time, efforts and more to Casa de Esperanza for the fourth year in a row.
Casa de Esperanza de los Ninos-the House of Hope for Children is a safe place for children in crisis due to abuse, neglect or the effects of HIV. Casa de Esperanza provides residential care and coordinates medical and psychological services according to the needs of each child.
This Houston organization strives to break the destructive cycle of child abuse by offering safe homes to children of families in crisis. The goal of Casa de Esperanza is to return physically and emotionally healthy children to stabilized homes where caregivers can safely provide daily care. Children receive comprehensive assessment and intervention services while in placement. Parents receive case management and referral services while their children are safely cared for. When family reunification is not possible, Casa de Esperanza is licensed to supervise long-term foster care and adoptive placements.
The entire restaurants’ staff, which is about 280 people, will continue their annual holiday tradition of giving back to the children and foster families of Casa de Esperanza.
Every year on Christmas Eve, the entire staff of the restaurants cook a Christmas dinner and deliver meals to all the foster families. This year they’ll be serving 45 children and over 20 caregivers.
In addition to the dinners, the entire Del Frisco and Sullivan teams will buy gifts for each individual child.
Arthur Mooradian, regional manager of Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group, stated how excited they are to be able to do this for the fourth year in a row.
“The entire team from all three Del Frisco's restaurants in Houston (Del Frisco's, Sullivan's and Del Frisco's Grille) is proud to take part in this annual tradition! With so many opportunities to give back throughout the year, I encourage others to share the love, as the reward of seeing all the smiling faces is better than any gift you can receive,” he said.
Sullivan’s Steakhouse in Houston is located at 4608 Westheimer, and Del Frisco’s is located at 5061 Westheimer. Del Frisco’s Grille is located at 2800 Kirby.
