“It’s hard times right now,” said Hall Star Grill Chef Mario Booker.

“So, I know a lot of people are not going to have as much or do as much for their kids that they want to do, so we’re just trying to, you know, spread out a little love, because who else gone do it if we don’t,” Booker said.

Hall Star Grill is located on Morang near Kelly Road in Detroit.
