An Antioch car dealer has an unusual Christmas present for the city.

Tom Nokes, the president of the Antioch Auto Center is pledging to match any donation made to the city up to $100,000. It's meant to help the city's budget deficit. Nokes has often raised concerns about budget cuts at the police department.

Within the last week the city sent layoff notices to six police officers, saying they would have to be cut if the police officer's union doesn't make concessions.

All 20 of the city's community service officers were also laid off earlier this year.
