SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- A generous donation this week from the sale of some controversial t-shirts being sold right here in South Bend.

Jason Barthel, owner of South Bend Uniform, donated $5,000 from the sale of the "Breathe Easy" t-shirts to the "Tom & Bryan Foundation."

The foundation is named for fallen officers Tom Roberts and Bryan Verkler, who were killed in the line of duty back in 2003.

Its mission is supporting children, and children's charities.

The foundation released this statement saying, in part: "The Tom & Bryan Foundation has no opinion on the t-shirts, or any other shirt. We, however, will continue to support all public safety and military personnel."
