Dog Haus delivered a special pre-National Chili Day treat to the homeless at Ascencia’s winter shelter at the Glendale National Guard Armory on Feb. 26. The Pasadena and Alhambra based eatery, recently named one of CNN’s Top Five Hot Dog Places in 2012, served up nearly 100 dinners that included signature Haus Chili Dogs. Dog Haus teamed with Ascencia to contribute in its plight to end homelessness in Glendale. Making sure the full house was “full,” Dog Haus also donated more than 200 hot dogs, chili, King’s Hawaiian rolls and more.
“This was a fun event that also reminds homeless and less fortunate people that they are cared about by their community,” said Dog Haus partner Hagop Giragossian. “We were so pleased to be able to contribute and help feed so many deserving people.”
Since 1997, Ascencia has been providing an array of services and housing to assist hundreds of homeless families and individuals as the largest operator of homeless services in Glendale. In addition to Ascencia’s 40-bed family/individual shelter, Ascencia is currently running an emergency winter shelter program for 80 adults during the winter season.
