Donating to those affected by Sunday's wildfires just got a lot easier.
Toot'n Totum and several members of the Amarillo media, including Pronews 7, are teaming up to raise funds for victims of the fires. Starting tonight, all 62 Tootn' Totum stores will be accepting cash and check donations. 100 percent of the donations will go to help those affected by the fires. The money will be given to the Texas Panhandle and East Texas Chapters of the Red Cross.
"In a city of Amarillo's size, everyone will know someone who has been affected by yesterday's fires," said Greg Mitchell, Toot'n Totum President. "This week, we can work together as a community to help each other and to hold hands with those in need. I knew yesterday that we needed to reach out in any way possible and having 62 locations will allow the Red Cross to touch every person in Amarillo who wants to help. Having grown up here, it's what we do and it's what everyone in the Panhandle does."
All Toot'n Totums, including the location in Borger will be accepting the donations through midnight on Sunday.
