TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Several communities, hit hardest by tornadoes in the south and Midwest states, are in need of help as clean-up begins.

Many people in Southern Arizona are doing what they can to help the tornado victims, many who lost everything.

World Care is asking for the public's help for donations, so they can send relief to the hardest hit areas. The organization is collecting supplies to deliver to the Midwest and south. 

Many people may have supplied World Care is looking for just lying around the house, including soap and shampoo, dental floss, toothbrushes and toothpaste. They are also in need of medical supplies like band-aids, gauze and aspirin. 

World Care is saying they are extremely low on supplies right now, so every donation is critical right now. The nonprofit moved in 2013 and has a new location for drop off - the Sam Levitz Furniture building on E. 36th St. near Palo Verde. 

Volunteers at World Care are available to help unload donations Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
