Frank Moy, the owner of Cafe Evergreen, says he’s honored to take part in this gesture.
“It is very tough for these people to be there 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” Moy said. “If there’s anything we can do to help them through this tough period of time, it’s heartwarming. It’s very satisfying.”
