Kicker – A decoration stimulus package

MARY REICHARD, HOST: The owner of a restaurant called the Sand Bar in Tybee Island, Georgia had an off-the-wall and off-the-ceiling idea to help her staff during these trying times. 

Over the past 15 years, a tradition took root whereby customers would scribble a few words on a $1 bill, and then staple it to the bar’s walls and ceilings. 

Owner Jennifer Knox told WTOC TV…

KNOX: We literally had money on the walls and time on our hands, and there was not a more perfect time to give back to our people.

Knox said she was thrilled to be able to help her employees in a time of need.  

It took three days to pull down $3,700 from those walls and ceiling. Her six employees each received about $600.
