BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - One thousand McDonald’s restaurants across Texas donated 10% of Thursday’s lunch sales to victims of the mass shooting in Uvalde.

The fundraiser happened June 23 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The proceeds will benefit the the Robb School Memorial Fund as well as the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

“While no amount of money can erase this tragedy, as local small business owners in Texas we feel it’s important we do our part to support the Uvalde community however we can,” said Manuel Pacheco, McDonald’s Owner/Operator. “Together, we can make a difference.”
