FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- Alexis Fairchild and Sidney Good are back in Indiana, but that's not stopping their friends from taking more action.

Alexis Fairchild and Sidney Good were injured in a parasailing accident in Panama City Beach, Fla., on July 1.

On Wednesday, a group of friends and employees at Huntington’s Zesto's, 2830 N Jefferson St., are raising money for the girls by selling t-shirts, bracelets, car decals and yard signs.

All of the proceeds from the sales will be given to Alexis and Sidney, and Zesto's will donate 25 percent of their sales to the girls also.

"We've had a great turn out so far. We're normally not really busy, especially since it's a Wednesday. I've never really seen this many people here before. Everyone, our community, just comes together really good and just does what we need to do in order to help them, so it's really nice,” said Katie Hunnicutt, organizer.

No word on how much money has been raised yet, but the sale continues until Zesto's closes at 10:30 Wednesday night.

If you can’t make it by then and would still like to donate, you can drop off your donation at Zesto's any time.
