Area restaurant donates
Texas Roadhouse of Hickory will hold a special boxed lunch Tuesday to benefit the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
The restaurant, which isn't usually open for lunch, will sell $10 boxed lunches available for dine-in or take-out from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m..
"It's been such a tragedy in this community," said Patricia Hatch, a managing partner of Texas Roadhouse. "We wanted to do something to help."
The lunches will include choice of a grilled chicken sandwich, a pulled pork sandwich, a hamburger or cheeseburger and french fries, coleslaw and tea.
Anyone with a large number of orders is asked to call in advance, Hatch said.
