Local Company Raises Money For Marine Killed In Chattanooga Shooting

SALEM (CBS) -- A North Shore company is helping raise money for the family of a Massachusetts Marine killed in Tennessee.

Chris Wrenn owns Sully's Brand. You may have seen their "Believe in Boston" t-shirts around.

Wrenn says when a friend of the family of Gunnery Sergeant Tom Sullivan reached out, he had to help.

"We have a "Believe in Boston" t-shirt slogan, and we used it to raise a lot of money in the wake of the marathon bombings in 2013," said Wrenn. "We were able to raise over $60,000 for the Boston One Fund, so we said why don't we do something similar in this situation."

So a special design tee is on sale, with profits going to a charity of the family's choice.

The shirts are olive drab. They're available online and over a thousand have already been sold.
