Fin's Seafood Restaurant in Grover Beach raised over $17,000 during their 'Giving Tuesday' event.

The restaurant sold take-out dinner meals and will now donate those proceeds to 5Cities Homeless Coalition.

Diners paid $25 for a seafood dinner meal that they could pick up curbside.Employees also donated their tips to the cause.

"We are grateful to Bruce Van Vort and the outstanding crew at Fin's, our volunteers, our donors and our sponsors, as well as community members who turned out in spite of the coronavirus," Nichols said. "The funds contributed on Giving Tuesday couldn't come at a better time when so many families are facing financial uncertainties due to the pandemic."

The money raised will help meet the increasing calls for Coalition services. Donations help fund case management, programs and operating costs as well as direct financial assistance for families - particularly children and youth - facing homelessness.

"Giving Tuesday" is a global movement for generosity, where people and/or organizations support various charitable endeavors.
