People across the state have come together to help the families who lost children in the Chattanooga school bus crash.

Thursday, volunteers gathered in Chattanooga to box up Thanksgiving care packages for the families.

Donations from near and far continued to pour-in -- including from the Tennessee Titans. 

The team donated $25,000 to The Woodmore Fund, which benefits the families.

Six children were killed when their Woodmore Elementary School Bus hit a tree and split in half Monday.

The driver in that deadly crash was charged with five counts of vehicular homicide as well as other related charges.

Durham School Services also announced that they will be paying for all six funerals.

The company's CEO, David A Duke, released a video statement on Wednesday, expressing his sorrow.  A spokesman later confirmed that the company offered to help each family by taking care of the bill for the funerals.
