Local businesses raise awareness for two different causes Sunday

WICHITA FALLS, TX - Local businesses showed support for two causes Sunday.

The Wichita Falls Fire Department, along with Chili's and other local businesses in town help a fund raiser today for Saint Jude Research Hospital in Memphis.

The fire department did a "fill the bucket" campaign and there was even a raffle.

The Texas Oklahoma blood institute joined in Sunday for people could give blood to Hurricane Harvey victims.

"We can only do so much for on the ground," said Kristina Abeyta a manager at Chili's.  "It is easy to sometimes feel detached form the rest of the world so whenever we can get down raise money for a basis for something like that it means a lot to us."

Organizers of the event plan to have another fund raiser for St. Jude's in November.
