      Pizza place giving back a slice at a time

      A Dickinson County business is extending a slice of their proceeds to help local causes.

      Blackstone Pizza in Iron Mountain and Norway is giving back to the community through what they do best: making pizza. They're doing what they call the "community service initiative" on Monday nights where they donate 15 percent of proceeds between 4 and 8 p.m.

      "We have been able to donate close to $2,000 so far this year. Our aim is to, in our first year, donate $10,000 to local causes," said Blackstone owner, Mark McKinnon.

      McKinnon says they've already had a great response from the community. If an organization is interested in being a part of the initiative, they can contact the restaurant.
