Fundraiser for soldiers

Posted: Updated:

A Brookhaven restaurant will host a fundraiser Saturday to benefit soldiers serving in Afghanistan.

Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers plans to support troops serving in the 10th Mountain Division in Afghanistan by supplying breakfast items. From 2 p.m. until 8 p.m., patrons who donate at least one item will receive 15 percent off of their total bill.

Requested items include: muscle milk, protein shakes, Carnation breakfast shakes, protein and cereal bars, individually packaged blueberry muffins, cereal in-a-cup with individually boxed milk and nonperishable breakfast foods. Other nonculinary items that would be appreciated include handwritten notes and books.

"This fundraiser was created by the parents of one of our old employees, who now serves in the 10th Mountain Division in Afghanistan. We thought this would be a great way to contribute to those who serve so graciously for the U.S.A. and to raise awareness of this current issue our U.S. Soldiers face," said Meredith Burleigh in a press release.

Burleigh is Assistant General manager for Mellow Brookhaven.

Mellow Mushroom Brookhaven is located at 4058 Peachtree Road in Atlanta.
