BUFFALO (WBEN) - They don't call Buffalo the City of Good Neighbors for nothing.

Over the weekend, we learned of La Nova's generosity, as they donated enough food to cover all staff at ECMC, but they're not the only local pizza joint looking out for healthcare workers.

"Obviously, our medical healthcare people are just on the forefront, and we're just trying to do our part," said David Powers, co-owner of Imperial Pizza. "Every day now, we're taking 12 pizzas in the morning for the Mercy shift and then 12 pizzas at night for Mercy as well. Like I said, we're just trying to keep their hopes up and their attitudes up, and everything we can do, it's as simple as that - everybody just trying to do their part."
