Original Mo’s Restaurant at 622 Bay Blvd in Newport will host the Wednesday, January 2, 2019, “Dine Out for Samaritan House”. The restaurant, renowned for their chowder, will donate 20% of the day’s proceeds to help support Samaritan House, a shelter for homeless families with children.
Ask any Oregonian about clam chowder and you’ll get one answer: Mo’s! Since the early days, the atmosphere of Mo’s has remained unchanged. Only the two stories of chowder factory, packing and shipping facilities added to the rear give a hint to the widespread popularity and demand for Mo’s Clam Chowder. The Chowder Factory produces about 500,000 pounds of clam chowder a year, some packaged and shipped to grocery stores and the rest delivered fresh to all the Mo’s Restaurants.
Samaritan House has been providing homeless families in Lincoln County with safe shelter and assistance in transitioning to self-sufficiency since 1988. Comprehensive case management and educational programming surround the residents with a supportive and sympathetic atmosphere where they can learn the necessary skills to be independent.
