This weekend is National Make a Difference Day and Applebee's wants to make a difference in their Michigan neighborhoods.

In a press release from the restaurant, for one day only they will be holding a fundraiser statewide at participating locations on Sunday, 10/27, to raise money to pay off lunch debt at schools across Michigan.

Each restaurant has teamed with a local school, or charity, to donate money. On that day, from 2p-8p, 20% of food sales will be donated to the chosen school/charity.

42 Applebee's restaurants in the state will be holding the fundraiser including the following West Michigan locations:

  • Caledonia
  • Comstock Park
  • Grand Haven
  • Grand Rapids
  • Grandville
  • Greenville
  • Holland
  • Walker

According to the release from the company, one in five kids in Michigan live in hunger.
