The deli is giving away sandwiches and raising funds for K9s for Warriors

ATASCADERO — Colony Market and Deli in Atascadero will be giving free sandwiches to all military personnel active and retired this Veterans Day, Friday, Nov. 11. They are also holding a raffle with prizes to raise funds for K9s for Warriors. Donations are being accepted.

This event was the brainchild of Atascadero resident and Colony employee, Kristina Knewby. 

“Kristina is always doing so much to help Vets. When she came to us with this idea, we thought it would be a wonderful way to show our gratitude for anyone who has served,” said Joanna Wemple, co-owner of Colony. 


Donations are being accepted, and a raffle will be held with proceeds going to K9s for Warriors. 

“This community is incredible”, Wemple continued, “we have already received contributions from Malibu Brew, Bunyon Brothers Tree Service, A Superior Crane, Semmes & Co, Wysong Construction, and The Ravine Water Park.” 

Sandwiches will be available on Friday, Nov. 11, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., while supplies last. Proof of past or present military service is required. To donate, contact Colony Market and Deli at (805) 460-6252, direct message on Facebook or Instagram @colonymarketanddeli, or email
