A coffee shop in Herrin is opening its doors on Mondays in April with a "pay what you can" menu and will donate all proceeds to a local charity.
"I'm not going to be petty about it ... we're going to take the entire jar and we're going to give it away," said Rob Lee Newman on a Facebook post on Newman and Co. from Sunday.
He said food and operating costs will not be deducted from the donations; he says his faith has sustained the business and now he wants to help others in their giving efforts.
On Monday, a new video showed Newman showing cinnamon rolls, cream cheese pastries and blueberry muffins. The coffee shop also serves a lunch menu and will stay open until 2 p.m. every Monday in April.
