A Florida oyster bar is removing thousands of bills customers attached to its walls and donating it to the Bahamas to facilitate the island’s recovery from Hurricane Dorian. 

The Siesta Key Oyster Bar removed close to $15,000 worth of bills from the walls over about a month, The Weather Channel reported. 

The restaurant shared a photo of several staff members still taking bills down. About 90 percent of the bills have been removed, according to the report.

General Manager Kristin Hale doesn’t expect all of the cash to be removed until the middle of the month. 

The hurricane killed 56 people on the island and displaced about 600 who are still missing.
