Next week is Dine for Dignity, Girls Think Tank's second annual "Restaurant Week" of sorts organized to support programs designed to empower people to transition off the streets. Six local restaurants will donate 10 percent of their sales on a specific day of the week to programs including 24/7 public restrooms downtown (coming early next year), a free legal clinic for the displaced, survival backpacks and the Transitional Storage Center, where folks leave their belongings so they can be mobile without the burden of bearing their entire belongings. These programs have led to increase employment and education among San Diego's homeless population.
Participating restaurants for Girls Think Tank's Dine For Dignity week include the following:
Monday, Nov. 3: 7pm-close - Neighborhood, 777 G Street, East Village
Tuesday, Nov. 4: 5pm-close - Sirena Gourmet Latin Seafood Restaurant, 1901 Columbia Street, Little Italy
