Aliño Pizzeria, sister restaurant raise over $71K for Ukrainian refugeesProvided

Aliño Pizzeria and its sister restaurant, The Barcelona Burger & Beer Garden, will donate $71,861 to World Central Kitchen toward relief efforts for Ukrainian refugees, according to a press release.

The Barcelona Burger raised money for the non-profit on March 8, while Aliño Pizzeria raised money on March 9. The restaurants matched the gift, and together they received a $5,000 gift from a donor.

"The message this week was, 'Buy a good meal and help Ukrainian refugees.' And many, many people came through," Michal Bay, owner of both restaurants, said in the release. "We're so grateful to our customers for stepping up.

"We are just one community, but we can accomplish so much for others."

Both restaurants are located in Mooresville, North Carolina.
