Magnolia Market is donating its net profits from the weekend’s sales to organizations helping victims of mass shootings in Texas, Ohio, California and Mississippi.

“Our hearts are breaking and we feel the need to quickly over whatever tangible support we can,” Magnolia tweeted Monday.

“We will also be organizing a blood driver here in Waco for all Magnolia employees and Market visitors in the upcoming days.”

At around 1 a.m. on Sunday, a man wearing a mask and a bulletproof vest opened fire in downtown Dayton, Ohio, killing nine including his sister and injuring 27 others before officers shot and killed him.

Just more than 12 hours earlier, a 21-year-old man from Allen opened fire Saturday in a busy Walmart store in El Paso, killing 20 and injuring more than 20 others. Two of the injured victims died Monday.

On July 30 in Southaven, Miss., a suspended Walmart associate killed two co-workers and wounded an officer and on July 28 in Gilroy, Calif., a man armed with a semi-automatic rifle killed there people including two children and injured 13 others before officers killed him.
