Del. Restaurant Owner Helps People in Need

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md.- Most days Rob Colone and his friends are at his restaurant, Goodfella's, in Dagsboro. But when night falls and the cold sets in, the group goes around Delmarva helping people in need.

When Colone told his friend Cherith Snyder about his plan to help feed people in need, she knew she had to help. So about a month ago the group began handing out food, clothes and blankets at locations in Rehoboth Beach, Ocean City and Salisbury.

"We were actually quite shocked because we didn't realize that it was that close to home," Snyder said.

Once word got out about the help, the group got very busy.

"Everybody is already congregating and they know we're going to be here, they pretty much count their blessings knowing that they're gonna get a warm meal, they're gonna have a dry blanket to use tonight and things like that," Snyder said.

And Colone plans on giving even more during Christmas. He has collected 200 toys and plans on driving around Delmarva giving them to children in need. Colone is asking parents to call him at (302) 858-9940 if their child needs a gift on Christmas.
