MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The Myrtle Beach Fire Department donated proceeds from a recent T-shirt campaign to a local nonprofit, aiming to help those with autism and other intellectual disabilities.

The department presented a $6,000 check to SOS Care (formerly SOS Health Care). The money was made through the sales of its autism awareness shirt earlier this year. MBFD also thanked screen-printer Native Sons for their help on the project.
