Whataburger pitching in to help Alto

JACKSONVILLE, Texas (KETK) - Whataburger has been part of the fabric of Texas since its founding in 1950. And now, once again, the state's favorite hamburger joint is proving itself a valuable part of the local community.

Whataburger in Jacksonville is pitching in to help those in Alto affected by Saturday's tornadoes with a "cruise-in" Thursday, starting at 5 p.m., at 627 S. Jackson Street.

Anyone who brings two medical items will be entered for a one-of-a-kind Whataburger basket. Items needed are:

  • Ibrephfrphin (24 count or more)
  • Acetaminophen (24 count or more)
  • Children’s Tylenol 
  • Children’s Advil
  • Blood glucoses strips
  • Neosporin

First Whataburger in Malakoff rolled out the red carpet for a WWII veteran celebrating his 100th birthday. Now the Whataburger in Jacksonville is helping those in Alto who need it so desperately.

We're starting to think this burger chain just might be a good neighbor.
