A San Mateo café has joined the legions of businesses and private citizens across the country who’ve signed up for what’s been heralded a “national day of doing good.”
The Rendez Vous Café will participate in Make a Difference Day on Saturday by donating 50 percent of sales to any charity of a customer’s choosing who mentions the event.
Millions of people across the country participate in the event each year through volunteer efforts, organizers say.
Celebrity supporters of the event include Kevin Bacon, Anne Curry and Matt Lauer.
“Giving back to the community has always been important to us and something we care about deeply here at the shop,” café owner Norayr “Harry” Rochanian said in an email.
“We could not be more excited to participate in Make A Difference Day and to join millions across the country in supporting great causes.”
