Local company helps children who have lost a parent in war

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Every year ASCO employees across the state of Texas and New Mexico pick a charity they raise money for.

Employees at all 22 of their locations hold separate events. So on Saturday, the ASCO employees of Amarillo held a car and bike show. All proceeds from the fundraiser go to A Soldier's Child Foundation, a non-profit that supports the children of our fallen military.

ASCO ownership matches dollar for dollar whatever their employees raise. Last year ASCO employees raised $125,000 for the Children's Miracle Network.

The non-profit was given a check for over $250,000.

This year ASCO has added ten stores to the company. They hope to give A Soldier's Child Foundation half a million dollars.
