Town House Books & Cafe started a program to give back to their community in December of 2014. Since then, they have donated a portion of their sales on one Tuesday of every month to a different local charity or organization. 20% of all sales in either the book store or cafe will be donated to Lazarus House on January 9th, 2018. So far this program has generated over $10,000 to local charities. Thank you Town House Books & Cafe and especially Doug Bella and David Hunt for their contributions to our community.
