ST. LOUIS, Mo. - On Friday morning, many people in Missouri and Illinois stepped up to help the needy pay their winter heating bills and got a hot breakfast at the same time. It was the 18th Annual Rise 'N Shine fundraiser for Heat Up St. Louis which ran at area Hardee's restaurants from 6 a.m. until 10:30 a.m.
So far, the campaign has raised $406,000, which is a 33 percent increase from last year.
The breakfast deal may be over, but you can still donate online.
This year's theme is Have A Heart, Heat A Home.
