TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Jeri's Midtown Cafe is hosting a Mother's Day gift and card drive on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

All gifts donated will go to Second Harvest of the Big Bend and The Kearney Center to mothers in need.

While she is not a mom herself, the cafe owner Jeri Madden says organizing this drive means a lot to her and it was a good opportunity to help the community.

"I love those two organizations and they are doing a lot for the community," said Madden. "They are near and dear to my heart so this was a good time for me to slow down and say, 'I'm going to put my money where my mouth is and give back to the community.'"

Madden says she really just wanted to be able to give back to moms this Mother's Day.

The cafe will also be open Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for brunch.
