GREENFIELD - Viewers have called TODAY'S TMJ4, asking how they can help two West Allis families who lost their children in a fire.

On Tuesday, a McDonald's in Greenfield is giving people an easy way to help.

25 percent of the money raised at the McDonald's on South 27th Street and West Cold Spring Road will go to the family of Michael Gonzales.

He was one of two 14-year-old boys killed in a house fire.

Family and friends of Gonzales said their final goodbyes on Monday.

He, along with his friend Isaiha Kobow died in a fire near the corner of South 57th and West Lapham Streets.

Gonzales cousin works at the McDonald's holding the fundraiser.

"They were having to pay for the funeral, and we felt we needed to help them out," said Jennifer Mirenda-Mueller, the manager at the McDonald's.

It runs between 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Tuesday.
