D’Vine Intervention: How One Chandler Restaurant Is Fighting Hunger

D’Vine Wine, in partnership with Spark Of Hope, will host a Wine Social featuring over thirty wines, live music, a silent auction and raffle, PLUS a full menu and happy hour cocktail prices all day long. Proceeds from the entire day benefit the Hamilton Homeless Fund.

The Hamilton Homeless Fund was created to ensure students are provided with basic needs such as financial aid, food assistance, crisis management and referrals to a variety of social services agencies. One in four students at Hamilton is eligible for meal cost assistance and it is estimated that more than 700 students may go hungry some evenings and on weekends. The Hamilton Homeless Fund is dedicated to helping students and their families through financial hardship to ensure students can focus on learning.
