Herrin restaurant will donate every dollar made on Monday

Posted: Updated:

HERRIN -- Newman and Company announced they'll be open every Monday for the rest of April to raise money for local charities. 

Owner Robert Newman says folks can order anything off the menu and give a donation as payment. He says it doesn't matter how little or how much you give,  he just asks that folks "give what they can." 

Newman says every dollar raised will go to help someone in Southern Illinois.

"I'm not going to take out any of my food costs or labor. I'm going to take whatever is in that donation box, we'll count it at 2 p.m., then we are going to pray about it and figure out who we want to give it to," said Newman. 

Newman says they'll open the doors Monday at 7 a.m and close at 2 p.m.

For now, the plan is to do this for the remaining Monday's in April. But he says, if they get a lot of support, they'll keep doing it.
