Alabaster’s Jim ‘N Nick’s restaurant will be serving food for a cause Jan. 22 as part of the company’s partnership with a Birmingham-based nonprofit organization.

The announcement came after Jim N’ Nick’s restaurants throughout the Birmingham metro area partnered with the Bell Center for Early Intervention Programs to sponsor children at risk for developmental delay.

Through the partnership, the Alabaster restaurant is sponsoring Helena resident Connor Sawyer, and is looking to raise $500 in donations to benefit him.

The restaurant will also donate 10 percent of its Jan. 22 sales to benefit Sawyer, said store marketer Tricia Garrett.

“The Sawyer family will be eating there at some point (Jan. 22),” said Garrett.

The restaurant will be open from 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Jan. 22. In addition to the daylong fundraiser, the restaurant will also be accepting donations at the store and online at

All money donated to the Bell Center will be used to fund early intervention services, like speech, physical and occupational therapy, special education services and nutritional counseling.
