ANNA MARIA, Fla. - An Anna Maria Island business is helping some restaurant workers who are temporarily out of work.

J & J Graphics is printing t-shirts to raise money for Rod and Reel Pier employees. The restaurant has been closed since September 30th after fire damaged the building. Repairs are expected to take two months.

The shirts are being given away with a $20 donation to All Island Denominations to help the pier employees while they are out of work. 100% of all money collected is donated.

The back of the shirt says "Established in 1947...Got smoked in 2013."

So far they've collected aboutd $4,500.

You can get the shirts at J & J Graphics, located at 9701 Gulf Drive in Anna Maria; or at Three Island Monkeys gift shop, located at 9801 Gulf Drive.
