TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

There are several ways the public can help those affected by tornadoes. 

Disaster relief organizations in Southern Arizona are already finding ways to help victims impacted by the recent tornadoes in the Midwest and south. 

Earlier Wednesday morning, the American Red Cross sent a local volunteer to the area. Daniel Coto will be helping in the center of the disaster for the next several weeks.  Right now Southern Arizona Salvation Army volunteers are on standby, ready to go if called to provide aid. 

Both the Salvation Army and the American Red Cross are asking for monetary donations.  The organizations say it is the fastest way to get aid and supplies to the hardest hit areas.
