Hacienda_GiveBack_Melissa JohnsonThe Plymouth High School Band Boosters and Hacienda presented 2015 PHS Graduate Melissa Johnson’s family with a check for nearly $2,500 Thursday night at the Plymouth Mexican Restaurant.

The two groups partnered and raised just under $2,500 for Johnson’s family to help offset the cost of medical expenses for the care of their 19-year-old daughter who was severely injured after a car accident back in December.

The accident has left Melissa with a traumatic brain injury.

On February 2nd from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., the Plymouth Hacienda donated 20% of all sales to Melissa’s family when patrons presented a Hacienda Gives Back coupon in her honor.

Management at Hacienda said this was the largest-ever “give back” event hosted by their Plymouth location.
