Elon, NC -- George Katsoudas says, "he'll match every dime, a patron donates at his restaurant."
Katsoudas is the owner of Skid's Restaurant in Elon. The restaurant is located at 134 W. Haggard Ave. near the intersection with Williamson Avenue.
"And I'm doing this to let them know that I'm there for them," said Katsoudas.
He told News 2 his six-year-old son inspired him to ask his customers for donations to send to Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, CT.
"The box is like my heart. And that box is apart of me, that's the unique part. When that goes up there, that's like me being up there with them. Not what's inside the box but the box itself."
Skid's staff will be collecting donations until Friday, December 21, 2012. For more information, call Skid's at (336) 584-5223.
Katsoudas also plans to send a special note with all the check and his customers signatures.
