BOSTON, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- May is a month of celebration honoring local heroes for their roles in making America a wonderful place to live. UNO's (www.unos.com) lives by a credo of "We Care". We're doing our part to celebrate those who educate, care and protect the rest of us. Each week during the month of May, we will honor these local heroes with a 15 percent discount.
"Throughout the month of May, we'll open our doors wide to show our appreciation to those people who help improve our lives and keep us safe each and every day," said Frank Guidara, CEO of UNO's and a veteran. "Sometimes, it's just the right thing to do to honor those who do the real work of teaching us, and protecting our health, safety and freedom."
