The brothers also put a call out to friends and business acquaintances to also donate, and led by example by giving $10,000. Bob and Glenn said they feel the kids should have a nice Christmas, especially those at Shriners Hospital.

“We try to help the community as much as we can,” said Glenn Sanders. “Knowing that everything burned up, we decided to pitch in and help make sure the kids have a Christmas. Everything they would have received burned up, and we are Shriners, so we knew we had to do something.”
