ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va (WVIR) -
An Albemarle County restaurant is offering a deal to help boost donations for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.
CiCi's Pizza in the Seminole Square Shopping Center is encouraging diners to drop off items in the store's collection barrel.
Customers can get a free drink with the purchase of a buffet if they contribute.
Santa paid a visit to the restaurant Sunday to spread some Christmas cheer.
“Before the holidays, it's tough for everybody, and if we can help the food bank, help families, that's what we want to do here at CiCi's,” says Kim Ryan, CiCi’s marketing director. “We want to be a part of the community and give back as well.”
CiCi's will be collecting donations until Friday.
Santa returns to the Albemarle County location on Wednesday night from 6-8 if you missed him on Sunday.
