Local restaurant leaps at chance to fill Share backpacks



Beaches Restaurants will host a “Cashback for Backpacks” fundraising event all day on Leap Day, Wednesday, Feb. 29.

On that day, half of what each guest spends on food and beverage will be donated Share’s Backpack Program. Guests must let their servers know they are there for “Cashback for Backpacks.”

Share’s Backpack Program sends weekend food home with needy children via 60 local schools. Approximately 1,300 children participate every week.

The offer is good at both the Vancouver waterfront and Portland Airport locations. Reservations are encouraged. Call Beaches Vancouver, 360-699-1592; or Beaches at the Airport, 503-335-8385. Visit beachesrestaurantandbar.com or sharevancouver.org to learn more.
