AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — People are coming together to help wounded warriors across Texas.

The money raised will go to help our hometown heroes and their families.
“I know there’s other organizations that do a lot for the warriors. Ours is centered pretty much on the families. We try to spread it out. I mean, we have really touched not only Dallas and Fort Worth, but Houston, San Antonio, and of course up here in Amarillo, now the panhandle,” said Dick Goetz, Wounded Warrior Foundation founder.
