Schmaltz Pays it Forward

Schmaltz Delicatessen used a bad situation for good, raising over $1,000 for a local non-profit. Yesterday evening people gathered to show support after the restaurant was vandalized on Sunday, in what is now being investigated as a hate crime. A total of $1,225 dollars was raised, which Schmaltz staff donated to UCARE, which aims to counter hate through education.
