Area businesses are lending their support to the victims of the Charleston church shooting..

Chili’s restaurant is donating 10% of Monday’s sales from 5:00pm to 9:00pm to go towards the Emanuel AME Church.

Chili’s general manager in Florence, Jacquelyn Arditi, said, “it is important to us to give back to our community in this time of need and we do not just want to sit around and not do anything when our community obviously needed us.”
