Restaurant donates all profits to fire victims

Posted at 7:15 PM, Mar 21, 2016

The Brunswick community is coming together to make a difference after a deadly fire rocked an apartment complex. 

The Paninis restaurant in Brunswick plans to donate all of their sales Monday to the families left homeless after the apartment fire. 

Families, like Jennifer Churnega's, lost pretty much everything. 

She told NewsChannel 5 the community's support has helped her family through it.
"The Brunswick community was a light in darkness," Churnega said.

Paninis' employees said, the massive turn out of customers is a testament to the Brunswick community.

"Every time something happens we get stronger, we bond closer together," server Maddie Goots said. 

Jennifer Churnega said families like hers couldn't appreciate it more. 

"It's a new start, security, it's a lot. It's a blessing," she said.
