MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Customers piled in to the Pizza Hut in Moultrie to help a little boy with brain cancer Thursday, and it's not too late to make a difference.

The restaurant is spending the day donating 20-percent of its proceeds to help out four year old Jacob Martin. He was diagnosed with a rare inoperable tumor in July after having a seizure.

The store manager says this was the busiest she's ever seen the store.

"When we opened on our grand opening we were busy.  But not as busy as we are [today]," said Pizza Hut manager Payton Moore. "We have people ordering 10 to 15 pizzas at a time. We have orders going out tonight that are for 25 to 30 pizzas. So they are really, really showing their support for Jacob and we really appreciate everything they're doing for us."

The money will help Jacob's family pay for travel and medical expenses. You can also send donations to the Jacob Martin Trust at Ameris Bank.
