THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL)--More a dozen restaurants in Thomasville will be donating part of their proceeds to the Red Cross.

All of the funds raised will be used to provide disaster relief assistance to nearby communities.

Just in the last year, the Red Cross of Southwest Georgia helped nearly 80 people with disaster assistance.

Jonah's Fish and Grits is just one of the restaurants participating on Thursday. The owner of the restaurant says it's important for businesses to give back to the community.

"Give back to people who are suffering and in need," said Caleb Brown. "We definitely believe in community, and if we come together and help each other out, it just makes a lot of things easier for everybody. Obviously a noble cause, we never now when disaster will strike and so we want to be a apart of helping people get through a tough time."

March is recognized as National Red Cross Month.
