"All proceeds will support the Homefront, a Columbus House initiative for homeless Veterans that includes street outreach, emergency shelter, transitional and permanent supportive housing."

"Each year, Chips owner George Chatzopoulos and his staff choose a deserving local charity to benefit from their annual Thanksgiving Benefit Breakfast," the release said. "Suppliers, local businesses, and community friends help make this annual event a success. This year, Chips has once again chosen to support the homeless Veterans initiatives at Columbus House.

Over the years, services have expanded to include comprehensive case management as well as transitional and permanent supportive housing for homeless adults; families with children; women with mental health disorders; adults in early stages of addictions recovery, and homeless Veterans.
