Decatur restaurants are taking part in Restaurants for Repairs on Tuesday, October 6.
When you eat at one of the participating restaurants that day, a percentage of the profits goes to the Decatur MLK Service Project.
The project is a volunteer initiative to help low-income Decatur seniors. Each year, over the Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, volunteers with the project repair seniors’ homes, doing yard work and adding handicap accessible features.
