The Matt Haley Companies, owned by local chef/ restaurateur Matt Haley, have committed to participate in the United Way of Delaware's annual "Sock It To Me" winter sock drive. The drive runs through Thursday, Feb. 13.
The participation of MHC comes on the heels of a second annual, and very successful, holiday coat drive organized through Haley's charity, the Global Delaware Fund.
"Last year several of the people I work with approached me with the idea of the coat drive." said Haley. "They ran with it and did an awesome job, and were even more successful this year. When I heard about the United Way's Sock Drive it really struck me as a natural fit for us because of how well we did with the coats this holiday."
Donations of new, unopened socks will be accepted at all seven of Haley's restaurants: Fish On, located in Lewes; Lupo di Mare, located in Rehoboth; Matt's Fish Camp and bluecoast seafood grill, both located in North Bethany; Northeast Seafood Kitchen, located in West Bethany; and Papa Grande's and Catch 54, both located in Fenwick Island. All seven restaurants are open seven days a week.
