Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Timothy's Restaurant committed to donate 10 percent of their food sales on Wednesday and Thursday nights to the locally run program. They also invested in advertising to promote the opportunity.
David Moresi had a vision when he bought the Mulcare Block nearly two years ago: Restore his grandfather's tavern, the Mohawk, and open an Italian eatery.
The Mohawk reopened last year, but the restaurant has taken a little longer and required just the right ingredient.
Moresi found it in another North Adams native who had recently returned to the area with his growing family.
