Businesses help food bank

Ten businesses on Anderson Way are joining forces to collect funds and non-perishables for the Salvation Army food bank.

While the saying goes that it only takes one to make a difference, several local businesses are teaming up for a miracle.

Ten businesses on Anderson Way are joining forces to collect funds and non-perishables for the Salvation Army food bank.

The inaugural event, called Christmas Miracle at Anderson Village, is underway until Dec. 20 at Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott, Wings Restaurant, Pho Fusion, Wasabi Japanese Restaurant, Bra Heaven, True Outdoors, Merle Norman, Blenz, Room Collection, Baron Insurance and Royal Garden Restaurant (which will be open in 2016 but still wants to collect goods).

“This is our first time so we’re all really excited about it,” said Edna Suarez, Fairfield Inn manager who brought the idea to area businesses and was pleased to have them all on board.

“It’s not just all about the business, it’s about helping others.”

Her goal is to extend the event with businesses all the way down Anderson Way taking part.

“That’s my target next year.”
