Lynchburg & Central Virginia News

LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — A new Indian restaurant in Lynchburg not only provided children with a safe trick-or-treating opportunity on Sunday, but it is also keeping its promise to donate 60 percent of its profits to community organizations.

Annie’s Indian Kitchen shelled out a good amount of money to sponsor a trunk-or-treat event outside of the Providence Transformation Church on Oakley Avenue.

The purpose of the event was to provide a safe space for children to trick-or-treat on Halloween.

The owner of Annie’s, Dr. Prince Arvind, says he’d like the restaurant to sponsor a community event at least every three months.

“I am here as a part of the community to bless the community. I feel that this is the greatest opportunity that I could ever have in my life,” said Dr. Arvind.

At the trunk-or-treat event on Sunday, Oct. 31, people in need not only received free bags of food to take home, but there were also counseling opportunities available.
