BRATTLEBORO >> Wednesday evening the Elliot Street Fish, Chips and More restaurant raised $683 for the "Carry Me Home" non-profit organization.

This was the restaurant's third charity night, or as they call it "Feeding Friendzy," event. Every first Wednesday of the month from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. the restaurant donates 60-percent of the evening's profits to a local non-profit organization. This month, the co-owners, Erin Scaggs and Olivia DeWolfe, donated to"Carry-Me-Home," an organization that ships baby carriers and winter clothing and boots to refugees in conjunction with another larger group "Are you Syrius?"

"The whole project is a really special change to help people," said Scaggs.

Vedrana Greatorex, of Spofford, N.H., started what is now Carry Me Home, a volunteer project, to tackle what she calls the "refugee crisis." Greatorex grew up in Croatia and moved to the U.S. when she was 20 years old. Are You Syrious? has been granted a non-profit humanitarian organization certification by the Croatian government. They transport and ship aid and dispatch volunteers, 40 core and 250 off and on people to Slovenia, Serbia, Macedonia, and Greece. Carry Me Home has supported Are You Syrious with over 120 baby carriers, close to 100 children's winter outerwear sets, 30 pairs of kids' winter boots and more than $2,500 in cash donations. Carry Me Home help raise funds by soliciting donations through their website at
