LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - A link has now been created to purchase t-shirts online in support of fallen first responder’s families.
The Lubbock Professional Firefighters Association and the Lubbock Professional Police Association, along with United, are hosting a t-shirt sale to raise money for the families of first responders who were killed and injured in the line of duty.
The latest shipment has arrived and the public is invited to 8517 Urbana, which is near 82nd and Upland Ave. Also, those who visit that location will be able to meet a firefighter. They will be selling them until 6 p.m. or until they run out. Firefighters and volunteers will be on hand to help the public.
So far more than $65,000 has been raised to help the families.
Just before 1 p.m. last Friday, there was a line around the grocery store, waiting to get a t-shirt.
All proceeds will go towards the families of Officer Nicholas Reyna, Lt. Firefighter David Eric Hill and Firefighter Matthew Dawson. Reyna and Hill both died while working a traffic crash on Saturday. Dawson remains in the hospital.
Shirt prices range from $15-$17 depending on the size. There is no word on shipping options available at this moment.
On Friday, the Lubbock Professional Firefighter’s Association posted a link where people can purchase the shirts on their facebook page.
