Giving back to the community is always a must for any local business. If anyone can talk about giving back, it is Steven Kalcanides of Helen's Pizza in Jersey City, a staple of the local downtown Jersey City community since 1968, when they opened.

What a great time everyone had!

To celebrate, they brought back prices from the beginning - at $0.25 a slice!

A total of 1,000 slices were sold throughout the day!

Some local faces stopped by, including Jersey City Mayor Stephen Fulop, Jersey City Ward E Councilman James Solomon, and Paul Silverman of Silverman properties.
