Several Tomball-area businesses and individuals have stepped in to donate funds for the family, including The Nook restaurant in Tomball, which donated $7,000 to the family, according to a June 6 Facebook post, after deciding to donate all of the proceeds from the weekend of June 3-5 sales. Tomball City Council members said at the June 6 regular meeting that some residents were paying $100 for hamburgers to support the families.
A GoFundMe was also started for the family with a goal of $500,000. The fundraiser is at $434,371 as of publication.
