TOMS RIVER – Representatives from Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar recently donated $1,000 to Toms River’s fire and police departments as a celebration of their newly remodeled Toms River location.

On March 14, the restaurant unveiled its updated location and dedicated 10 percent of the opening day proceeds to Toms River fire and police.

As always, the restaurant’s décor focuses in on community. Now there is a stronger theme of education, non-profit organizations and first responders with photos from local high schools, youth sports programs, emergency responders and community groups hung on the walls.
