Did you ever get money for good grades on a report card? Or how about finding money under your pillow where you left a tooth? There are some kids in Winchester that will never experience that.
A program called "Dining for Dollars" is trying to change that. The Winchester Department of Social Services and Glory Days have teamed up to collect money for "Dining for Dollars." Between 15 and 20 children in foster care benefited from last year's event.
"The Department does get money from the federal and state government," said Winchester Department of Social Services Jaimi Lineberg. "That funding primarily covers the basic care needs of the child such as medical, dental, their housing, transportation that they may need to and from appointments. It does not cover birthdays, or graduation."
"Dining for Dollars" begins December 5th and runs through December 17th. 10 percent of your food bill at Glory Days will go back to the Winchester Department of Social Services.
