Friends and co-workers hold benefit for Applebee’s worker in need of help

ALTON, IL (KPLR) - The Alton community is rallying behind an Applebee's worker in need of help.  The restaurant donated 15% of its sales tonight to help Eddie Hitchcock.  The restaurant server is well known in the community for his kindness.  His father was recently critically injured in an out-of-state accident and Eddie does not have a vehicle to get back and forth to Alton.  Friends started a GoFundMe page to help with medical expenses and they hope to help him buy a car.
