TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Efforts in Tucson are underway to help families in Mexico displaced by two storms last month.

The Tucson Padres and Visit Tucson are organizing a canned food drive, where you donate two items and get one free ticket to a Mexican baseball game on Sunday.

It hits close to Tucson, just across the border.

Many families are in need of help after two storms devastated much of the country and organizers are hoping to use a fun baseball game to bring in canned goods.

Tonight was the opening night of Vamos a Tucson Mexican Baseball Fiesta.

They had a live band playing. Although, no food was donated today, organizers say it's OK. They are hoping to just spread the word.

The storms in Mexico are being blamed for 140 deaths. About 50 more people are missing.

Many are left homeless with no food and no clothes.

You can bring two canned food items any day for the rest of the week and get a free ticket to Sunday's game.

Games start at 5:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
