World Care sending first round of Tucson donations to Oklahoma

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Today some of Tucson's donations to help the victims of a deadly tornado will be taken to Oklahoma.

More than 22 pallets of donated items are ready to go to those in need in Oklahoma.

Volunteers will load the items up in the first semi that is planned to take off this morning.

Two World Care employees arrived in Oklahoma yesterday surveying the damage and visiting various donation centers.

They said the devastation gave them chills and stunned them to silence.  The two employees saw many residents trying to rebuild, but they were still dealing with damp weather.

These same employees found a place to deliver the first semi load of donated items, at Hillsdale Bible College, now open as a donation center in Oklahoma.

World Care is in need of more volunteers to help keep up with all the donations coming in.
