Century House managing partner receives Community Leader Award
Colin DeMers, managing partner of The Century House in Latham, New York, has received the annual Community Leader Award from the Colonie Chamber of Commerce.
DeMers and the restaurant, banquet facility and inn were recognized for their “Enjoy One, Share One” program, in which for every meal purchased, the business donates the equivalent of one meal to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York.
So far, the program has supported more than 250,000 donated meals since it was started in June 2009, DeMers said.
“You can still support a charity while helping yourself,” he said.
Century House staff also volunteers once a month at soup kitchens around the Capital Region. DeMers said his establishment underwrites the monthly meal of chicken breast, roasted potatoes, green beans and cake served at the various meal sites.
