CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- As the residents of Oklahoma continue to clean up and start the rebuilding process, there is a way you can help here at home and treat yourself at the same time.

Monday, Papa Murphy's locations all across Central Illinois are pitching in to raise money for the residents of Oklahoma, by donating half of their pizza sales to the "United Way Tornado Relief Fund."

Store owners say it's all about giving back in a time of need.

"We hope to raise as much money as possible," said Kim Fields, Co-owner of Papa Murphy's in Morton. "I can't even begin to say the amount because I don't want to put a limit on it. I just hope people come out and get pizzas and we can help those in need."

Many area stores are open until 8 p.m. Check with your local Papa Murphy's for more information.
