Spirit Day at Little Caesars to honor first responders

A Spirit Day will be held this coming Monday at the Little Caesars in Valley to honor first responders.

“We’d like to invite everyone to come out and support us next Monday [Dec. 11],” Chief Tommy Weldon said. “Eat pizza and wings and all that good stuff at Little Caesars.”

Weldon explained that Spirit Day is an opportunity for Little Caesars to team up with local organizations to raise money and that all funds will go towards the Tri-County Children’s Advocacy Center, a non-profit group that serves Chambers, Randolph and Tallapoosa counties.

The Chief continued, noting the organization currently is serving 41 children.

“These children are victims of sexual abuse or physical abuse,” he said. “Tri-County CAC provides a service where they interview the children and they testify in court. They help counsel the children to deal with the trauma they’ve endured.”

All the money raised, Weldon added, would go towards buying Christmas gifts for the 41 children across three counties.

How it works is a customer goes to Little Caesars and tells them they are there for Spirit Day. Then any item purchased that is $5 or more will count as a point. Each point then is counted as ten percent of the item. At the end of the day, ten percent all Spirit Day sales will go towards the CAC.

“We’d like to encourage everyone to come out and support us,” Weldon said.

Little Caesars Director of Operations said all a customer needs to do is come in and say they’re there to support first responders.

“We’ll ring bells and have a big party for them,” he said.

Spirit Day will be held this coming Monday, Dec. 11, at the Valley Little Caesars from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
