DEMING – Charlie Cats’ Diner, at 1601 E. Pine Street, received a warm welcome to the community as Deming’s lone nonprofit eatery. Under the flag of Colores United – a 501©3 registered organization – the café drew quite a reception during a June 12 grand opening.

“We had a car show, Deming High cheerleaders, and of course, our delicious menu items,” said Crystal Milo, secretary for the organization. “The concept for this project is to provide a hands-on learning experience for youth to find meaningful employment in the food industry and to continue our service to the community.”

So, how does a nonprofit operate a diner? “Grants, Milo told the Headlight. “At Colores United, we continue to provide food distribution efforts throughout the community. We provide clothing, personal hygiene supplies, and the work with asylum seekers continues.”
