Owners of Chicken-with-Bones, Embargo 62, Stir, and State of Confusion partnered together earlier this month to support homeless families by participating in Family Dinner Week: A Benefit for The Maclellan Shelter for Families.

During the week of May 5-12, restaurant partners donated a percentage from every meal to support Chattanooga’s family shelter. On Thursday, a check in the amount of $11,050 was presented to the Maclellan Shelter for Families.
