Restaurant opens on Thanksgiving for Carrie’s Kids

BISMARCK, N.D. - A restaurant in town opened its doors today just to serve a Thanksgiving meal to at-risk kids in the Bismarck Community.

Kobe's Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar made chicken, rice veggies and more for kids in the Carrie's Kids program. That program helps kids, teens and families that are at-risk.

"Thanksgiving is for family and a lot of these kids don't have that, and so to open just for them, and to make them feel special, is something that we strive for every day,” Assistant Manager Alyda Smith said. “And it was just perfect timing. And we can have them on Thanksgiving, we're not open to the public, and just give them a great time, they needed that for today."

The restaurant regularly works to serve meals and give back to non-profits in the community.
