The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel is no Grinch.
The hotel will be collecting canned food, toys, books and stuffed animals to donate to local charities throughout the holiday season, according to a news release. Guests who donate will receive a card that gives them 15% off in the hotel's restaurants and shops, plus a free day of valet parking.
The resort will collect canned goods and non-perishable food items at the Thanks-for-Giving Buffet on Nov. 24 and the Christmas Day Buffet on Dec. 25. All items will be donated to the Orange County Rescue Mission.
