HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - An outpouring of support across the coast on Wednesday.

Domino's pizza stores across the area are holding a fundraiser for the Matute family.

Benito Matute and his daughters Rosalinda and Julisa were killed in a six-car accident on Highway 49 two weeks ago.

Wednesday, Domino's across the coast are participating in a drive to raise money for the family.

Jerry Kelly kickstarted the project to support the family of his longtime customers.

"I didn't expect it to get started this early," said Kelly. "The phones started ringing before we actually opened. It was pretty good actually, as you hear now phones are still ringing.

Kelly says several people called to order pizza simply wanting to help the family, and told him to donate the pizza to a homeless shelter.
