Sylvia Nolasco-Rivers Reprioritizes

A smaller tamale shop will leave more time for her nonprofit.

Sylvia Nolasco-Rivers is downsizing Pilar's Tamales. She closed the dining room next door to her original restaurant in June to devote more time to her new nonprofit.

She says she has been holding various fundraisers in the community since 2000, including ones for people in Haiti, Yemen, Nepal, and her home country of El Salvador, and recently for Ann Arbor's sanctuary movement.
