A feel good story from Anaheim

Excellent story, and I'm usually the one who scoffs at the notion that you can throw money at the poor and expect them to automatically better themselves.

Sounds like the targeted families are more 'less fortunate' than outright poor, and the charity probably stands a better chance of sustainably impacting their lives.

"Bruno Serato came to the U.S. with just $200 in his pocket, worked his way up from dishwasher, and is now the owner of the Anaheim White House Restaurant. For the last ten years, he has worked to improve the lives of motel kids. His non-profit foundation, Caterina's Club, feeds 1,200 poor kids a day with meals cooked in his restaurant kitchen between lunch and dinner, meals delivered by van to nineteen different after-school programs in seven Orange County cities.

 

Through Caterina's Club, Serato has initiated a new program to cover the costs of security deposits needed to move families out of motels. The Welcome Home program selects from a pool of applications for assistance, targeting working families who just need that extra help. Serato himself is not a rich man. During the recession, he had to take out a second mortgage to keep his food program running. But there's more than one way to feel rich. With the help of donors, Serato has placed 65 families into their own homes."

 

standing ovation for bruno serato. i love hearing stories like this.
