SC Aquarium gives can donation holiday discount

CHARLESTON, SC (AP) - The South Carolina Aquarium is taking $2 off adult admission for anyone who brings in a can of food this holiday season.

The aquarium will donate the food to Crisis Ministries.

Officials say Piggly Wiggly has donated thousands of cans of food that will be used to make sculptures that look like the Morris Island Lighthouse. Those cans will be given to charity.

The promotion runs through Dec. 23.
