The Mill restaurant in St. Petersburg and its newly-opened location in Brandon are collecting donations to help residents of the Florida Keys who've been affected by Hurricane Irma.

The restaurant asks that locals bring toiletries, baby formula, baby food, baby wipes, pet food, socks, canned goods, bottled water, flip-flops and other non-perishable food and supplies to the restaurant today and Wednesday.

Stay to eat after donating, and receive 50 percent off all food items except happy hour specials and charcuterie plates, a news release said.

The restaurant said the donation drive came about because the restaurant's managing partner had planned to have his bachelor party in Key West this weekend. After the destruction from Irma, he decided that rather than cancel the party he'd change the focus to helping with the relief effort.

A group will be taking donations collected this week and distributing them to relief organizations in Marathon on Friday.
