Virtual food drive helps local food bank
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Bistro Group, the nation's third-largest franchisee of TGI Friday's restaurants, is teaming up with the Mountaineer Food Bank for its fourth annual "Can For A Fan" virtual food drive.
The event is going on now through Oct. 15. TGI Fridays in the greater Charleston, Cincinnati, Youngstown, Dayton, Lexington, Louisville, Owensboro, Paducah and Pittsburgh communities will donate one can of food for each new Facebook fan at www.facebook.com/EatAtTGIFridays.com
Additionally, for each "like" received on local TGI Fridays' Facebook pages, another canned food item will be donated to Mountaineer Food Bank. Local fan pages may be found on the "Can For A Fan" tab on each location's Facebook page. Local TGI Fridays restaurants' sites may be found by logging onto Facebook and typing in "TGI Fridays Cross Lanes" or "TGI Fridays Southridge."
"The services the community food banks provide in our neighborhoods are critical, and we look forward to giving our support as part of The Bistro Group family's continued commitment to the community," Amie Dancu, director of marketing for the TGI Fridays franchisee, said in a statement.
