Columbia Restaurant’s Community Harvest Program to Benefit Council on Aging

Throughout the month of September, diners at Columbia Restaurant are invited to let their appetite do the giving while they support local non-profits including St. Johns County Council on Aging (COA).  For the 23rd year, Columbia Restaurant is offering its Community Harvest program to benefit local non-profit organizations.  All seven Columbia restaurants are participating, including the St. Augustine location at 98 St. George Street.

Through the program, Columbia Restaurant will donate 5 percent of all guests’ September lunch and dinner checks to the charitable organization chosen by their customers from a ballot provided with the check. There is no additional cost to the guest.

Over the past 22 years, the Columbia Restaurant Community Harvest has donated more than $2.6 million to non-profit organizations throughout Florida.  All Columbia locations are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. For more information, visit www.ColumbiaRestaurant.com.

The Columbia Restaurant in St. Augustine is located downtown at 98 St. George Street. For more information, call 904-824-3341, or visit their website at www.ColumbiaRestaurant.com. 

“We started this program as a way to help many of the worthy non-profit groups that are so important to our communities,” said 4th generation family member and president Richard Gonzmart. “With the devastating effect of the coronavirus on the economy and overall decline in charitable donations, it’s even more important this year.”
