Roanoke, Virginia – Giving back, one cube at a time.
Lucky, a restaurant in downtown Roanoke, is making a difference this holiday season.
Cubes for Kids kicked off in early December and for every toy donated, the restaurant gave customers two free bourbon cubes.
Owner Hunter Johnson said there was a line to donate toys the first day they kicked off the fundraiser.
The toys are going to children who are part of Roanoke County’s Child Protective Services program to help keep families together.
“We’ve never had this sizable donation. We’ve never had this kind of community give back for something that we do day in and day out,” said Family Services Supervisor Ben Jones with Roanoke County DSS.
“It was unbelievable the turn out we got. It was unbelievable. It made our week. It gave us something to be excited about. When someone came in with toys, we were all like little kids,” said Johnson.
He said they will organize Cubes for Kids again next year since it was such a huge success.
