Video: Syrian Restaurant Family in Denver Helps Refugees Abroad

Videographer Kevin Beaty met with Mahmoud Kassir and his family, who have run Damascus Restaurant on South Colorado Boulevard since 1990, to find out more about their efforts to spread charity — and to highlight their culture through good food.
