Chesterfield restaurant offering free slice of pizza for new toy donation

RICHMOND, Va. -- A slice for Santa. A Chesterfield business owner wants to fill some tummies with free pizza, if you help their restaurant help children in need this holiday season.

That’s the goal of a toy drive hosted by Brooklyn Pizza Authority, benefiting nonprofit Mission From The Heart Foundation.

The organization was started more than two years ago by CBS 6 News Reporter Shelby Brown.

Qais Ibrahim is the owner of Brooklyn Pizza Authority on Hull Street Road. He says for each customer who donates a new unwrapped toy will receive a free slice of cheese or pepperoni pizza.

The customer will also be entered into a raffle for a free family meal. Two lucky winners will be chosen for that. An announcement will be made on the Barry Farmer Morning Show.

Ibrahim says he and his team just want to spread some cheer to area children in the midst of a very tough year.

“There are a lot of businesses that are closing. There are a lot of businesses that are hurting. God blessed us to have this running. It’s time to give something back and to show the people that are supporting us that we are here to support other people in need,” Ibrahim added.

The toy drive kicked off on December 7 and runs through December 19. Donations can be dropped off at the restaurant at 10613 Hull Street Road.

Mission From The Heart volunteers will then distribute the toys to area families.
