MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - For the second year, Second Line restaurant opened its doors to provide free meals and haircuts to about 500 people in need.
Blankets, coats, hats and gloves were handed out to those in need as part of this “Day of Warmth.”
Second Line owner and chef Kelly English said giving back on New Year's Day is about helping those in need start the new year off right.
“You know Memphis is a puzzle and when those puzzle pieces fit together it is a pretty special thing. This is a town that is full of people that care deeply about our community,” English said. “You don't have to be from here to be from here.”
MATA provided free rides to the event.
A nurse from Le Bonheur was also on hand to provide checkups for children.
