Hatter’s began lining up early to get some free french fries and support HALO.

McCain donated the frozen fries and Western Tractor locations were the site of the handout.

Medicine Hat was first up on the list, with Burdett, Taber, and Lethbridge being visited through the day.

Officials said they have already surpassed what they hoped to raise for the entire day.

Organizers say they are thrilled with the outpouring of support from the community.
