Stockton, CA / Bilingual Weekly
In economic dire times, Fathers & Families of San Joaquin (FFSJ) has turned to eating to help fund its activities.
In doing so, it has enlisted the participation of North Stockton’s BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse who will donate 15 percent of all food and drink (alcohol excepted) consumed by patrons on Thursday November 11, 2010 to FFSJ. A flyer (click here http://www.ffsj.org/463Father’sFamiliesofSanJoaquin.pdf to view and print) must be presented for the restaurant to honor the donation.
FFSJ is the local leader in providing youth and young parent programs and services —emphasizing the role fathers play in raising families. “We also advocate\s for improved neighborhood conditions, building stronger communities, supporting equitable education solutions,” added Samuel “Sammy” Núñez, FFSJ’s Executive Director, “and finding alternatives to punishment when dealing with the problems facing the children within our communities.”
