Five Niagara Falls-area restaurants will donate some of their proceeds this week to Community Missions of the Niagara Frontier as part of the annual Giving Tuesday event.
Community Missions, 1590 Buffalo Ave., has been providing aid for troubled Niagara County residents for 92 years. Services include a homeless shelter and soup kitchen, and mental health counseling.
As part of a "Dining for Dollars" promotion, Rainforest Café will donate 10 percent of its sales on Tuesday to Community Missions. TGI Fridays will do so on Wednesday, the Power City Eatery on Friday and Third Street Retreat on Saturday. Also, the Village Bake Shoppe will donate $1 from every Cake in a Cup sale from Monday through Friday.
