Waldo’s newest restaurant is saying “thank you” to its customers with free biscuits and gravy while supporting a phenomenal Kansas City cause, the Veterans Community Project, during its Customer Appreciation Day, Monday, Feb. 27.
Veterans Community Project is a Kansas City-area organization dedicated to transitional housing for homeless veterans. On Feb. 27, VCP will display one of its “tiny homes” at Neighborhood Café-Waldo, 7531 Wornall, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers from VCP will be on hand to talk about their association and collect donations to help support their Veterans Village tiny-homes project.
Neighborhood Café-Waldo will also be celebrating a ribbon cutting with the South Kansas City Chamber of Commerce at 11 a.m. that day. All day long, the café will celebrate Customer Appreciation Day with a free quarter-order of biscuits and gravy.
“We have had an extremely warm welcome to the Waldo neighborhood since we opened last fall,” owner Tony Olson said. “Giving back to the community is important to us at all of our restaurants and we are thrilled to have VCP coming by to show what they do to help homeless veterans get back on their feet.”
Neighborhood Café-Waldo is one of three restaurants in the Snax Management family, including the Lee’s Summit location and Chubby’s on Broadway.
All locations participate in a program to honor local veterans with photos displayed on the walls. They ask that the veterans’ portraits be the original service photo and either a 5x7 or 8x10. The full names of the service members must be included, along with a contact name and phone number of the member or a family member; rank and branch of service is optional.
“We would love to bring positive attention to the mission and outstanding work done by the Veterans Community Project during this event,” Olson said.
