ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – A local restaurant has announced how much money their most recent Giveback Tuesday raised.

Katie’s Pizza and Pasta donated Tuesday’s profits to the World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit that helps feed Ukrainian refugees at Poland’s border. The family behind the restaurant told News 4 the war strikes close to home because owner Ted Collier’s mother was born in Kyiv and fled a similar situation when she was 4 years old.

Friday, it was announced that co-owner Ted Collier matched the amount of money raised during the event, making their final donation to World Central Kitchen $17,000.
