Adults with disabilities take ownership of Eddie Merlot's garden
BURR RIDGE – The name says it all: Helping Hand.
While Helping Hand Center may be known for serving children and adults with disabilities, its members are no stranger to helping others as well, including Eddie Merlot’s restaurant in Burr Ridge.
At the beginning of the year, members of Helping Hand worked on the janitorial staff at the restaurant as a way to gain vocational training. Then in May, general manager Mike Rufo teamed up with executive chef Dan Tucker to install a garden to not only supply fresh produce and ingredients for the restaurant, but also to provide more opportunities for Helping Hand members.
