FREEBIRDS, a burrito restaurant that originated in Santa Barbara back in 1987, held their Grand Opening near USC today. The popular chain has decided to open up 16 new locations in California this year.
Keeping in line with their mission, “Feed Your Belly, Feed Your Soul”, they benefit charities at their Grand Opening Events. Yesterday, proceeds went to the Art of Elysium, and today donations were given to us to help people experiencing homelessness. The first 250 guest to arrive were able to receive a free burrito in honor of their $5 donation.
We are so thankful for the generosity of FREEBIRDS, and to everyone who came out to the event to day to support our work here at Union Rescue Mission!
