EL PASO - The Child Crisis Center of El Paso is getting a boost from a big store in the city.
Helen of Troy, which donates a portion of its sales to a specific charities every Sunday, focused on the Child Center today.
They're giving away 10 percent of their profits to the charity.
One store employee told us this is a way for El Pasoans to get involved and help their communities.
"It's very important that way they can come and help, so the charities can get more money and they can have more money to help the people that we're doing the charities for," Melissa Calzid said.
The Child Crisis Center of El Paso protects kids from child abuse and neglect. They provide emergency shelter, family support and other services to newborn and other children up to the age of 13.
