MARBLE FALLS — First responders understand the importance of taking care of people, and the same holds true when it’s one of their own.

On Jan. 29, the Marble Falls Area Volunteer Fire Department is hoping residents will head over to the Pizza Hut in Marble Falls, where patrons can get something to eat while raising money to help a Marble Falls Area EMS volunteer.

Throughout the day, 20 percent of purchases ($10 minimum) will go to the department. People must have a flier of the event with them so a part of their purchase goes to the department.

VFD Assistant Chief George Tennison said the money raised will then go to help Robert Randle, an EMS volunteer, with funeral expenses for his 24-year-old brother, Bryan Lee Randle.

Bryan Lee Randle died Jan. 18 in a one-car accident in Austin. His funeral was Jan. 22.

The event at the restaurant, located at 1000 U.S. 281 in Marble Falls (at the intersection of RR 1431), is good from open to close. It covers dine-in, carry-out and delivery orders.

But customers needs to have fliers for the fundraiser. People can pick them up at the fire house, 606 Ave. U, or from one of the volunteer firefighters.
