We’re told those who donate formula, clothes, non-perishable food, or other body supplies for the Domestic Violence Shelter and Services of Wilmington, will receive half of a cheesesteak, and a coupon.

“Well the hospitality of our staff and the longevity and the quality of the food, it’s always consistent, and its marvelous food,” Hutson said.

J. Michael’s 40th anniversary celebration is Sunday from 4-7 p-m at the Hanover Center across from the Independence Mall in Wilmington.
