People who eat at T.G.I. Friday's in Roseville today can help support the Volunteer Center of Sacramento's program to break the cycle of homeless for children.

Through 2 a.m. Saturday, the restaurant is hosting Dining for Dollars to benefit the nonprofit group that has provided the region with millions of dollars of volunteer services and administration for 50 years, according to a press release.

The group connects volunteers with more than 400 nonprofit organizations and they operate the Alternative Sentencing Program so people can do community service when they can't afford to pay traffic tickets.

Diners should mention the Volunteer Center of Sacramento to their waiter for the restaurant to donate 15 percent of the food bill to the organization. T.G.I. Friday's is located at 1168 Galleria Blvd. in Roseville. For more information on the Volunteer Center of Sacramento, visit
