Burger joint sales benefit kids

Five Guys Burgers & Fries at the Miller Hill Mall in Duluth will donate 10 percent of its sales from 4-8 p.m. today to the Simon Youth Foundation, which operates 23 academies across the U.S. for at-risk students.

The foundation, which was established in 1998 and provides students the same education they would receive in a traditional classroom while offering the flexibility that their individual circumstances require, has helped more than 8,000 students earn their high school diploma and provided more than $9.5 million in post-secondary education scholarships to 3,200 students in 42 states, according to a news release.
