Officers in Central Texas are working behind the counter at McDonald's Friday as a part of an annual event to raise funds to help families of first responders that were killed or critically injured in the line of duty.
Locals owners of Central Texas McDonald's locations partnered with the 100 Club of Central Texas and the Hill Country 100 Club to raise the funds. This is the 10th annual Good Friday fundraiser.
"(The organization) actually reach out to those families and say, 'Hey, we have some resources we can help out with to pay for those initial financial concerns, and it's a less concern or worry that a family has to worry about, which is rightfully so," Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody said.
The restaurants will donate a percentage of the sales generated from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to the 100 Clubs. Greater Austin first responders will be at the McDonald's to thank customers for showing their support for the cause.
KVUE's Christy Millweard caught some Williamson County sheriff's deputies in action Friday:
"We want to say to everyone thank you for helping us out, and its a good place to meet the public and also inform them and educate them about what's going on in law enforcement," Chody said.
Go here to donate to the 100 Club of Central Texas in the future.
