ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

One Albany restaurant is partnering with a non-profit group to raise money for the organization.

Ruby Tuesdays off Dawson Road kicked off their Community Giveback Program partnering with Mission Change.

All day Saturday, the restaurant is donating 20 percent of each customers purchase to Mission Change.

But customers have to present the coupon at the time of purchase in order to make a donation.

"We're just encouraging everybody to go and download the coupon off of our web site, off of our Facebook event page under mission change and you can go to Missionchange.com and we are just really excited because this is a whole other way to get other restaurants involved and get other people involved just by going to have a meal and giving back," says the organization's Executive Director La Donna Urick.

Mission Change will also be accepting ready-to-eat food items like fruit cups, and crackers for their Backpack Blessings Food Drive Saturday morning from 9 to 11 o'clock.
