The fund to help wounded Fort Worth Police Officer Matt Pearce grew by tens of thousands of dollars Monday after an overwhelming response to a fundraising event at 18 Chick-fil-A restaurants across Tarrant County.
Chick-fil-A also donated 20 percent of sales between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. to Pearce, and members of several police associations sold t-shirts with a #TeamPearce logo for $10 each.
The shirts sold out at some locations in a matter of minutes.
"Anything to support the community," one woman said, as she was standing in line for a shirt.
Inside, people waited in long lines to buy food.
The Fort Worth Police Officers Association tweeted late Monday that shirts can be ordered online before Friday.
