ARLINGTON, Texas — Arlington-area burger restaurants have launched the Burgers 4 West campaign to help raise money for those affected by the fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas that reportedly killed at least 12 and injured more than 200 Wednesday night.
“The Burgers 4 West campaign is a fundraising effort designed for an unlimited number of burger restaurants to facilitate donations to the community of West, Texas. On April 28, 2013, participating establishments are requested to donate proceeds from burger sales during the course of their respective events. Participants are also encouraged to engage their social-media channels using the hash tag #burgers4west to help promote and create uniformity for the campaign,” reads a statement for the campaign.
Chef Kenny Mills, of Chop House Burgers, supported by Wheeler Advertising, launched the campaign. Funds raised will benefit the Salvation Army.
