ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Farmburguesa delivered hamburger meals to elderly and disabled residents at Melrose Towers and Morningside Manor on Tuesday thanks to a large donation from the CEO of Camping World and Gander Outdoors.
A $10,000 donation was given to the owners of Farmburguesa from Marcus Lemonis, the CEO of Camping World and Gander Outdoors and host of “The Profit” on CNBC.
