MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Huey's Restaurants are campaigning to improve literacy across the Mid-South.

The campaign is called 86 Illiteracy and it partners with groups like Literacy Mid-South and Memphis Athletic Ministries to improve basic reading schools.

Here's how it works: each month, customers at a different Huey's location will have the chance to add 86 cents on their bill.

The Collierville restaurant raised $575 in October while Germantown raised $2,100 in November.
