Tucsonans step up to help Oklahoma victims

TUCSON - Tucsonans wanting to donate items to the families affected by the deadly tornado in Oklahoma can drop off items at World Care.

The organization is collecting donations ranging from non-persishable food items to cleaning supplies and hygiene products.

Gwen Corner said World Care plans to transport the supplies in the coming days, "basically we need clean up supplies the most right now. We're going to try and send those within the next week. Trash bags, shovels, work gloves, things like that."

On Tuesday Marilyn and Ken Nowell dropped off a check at the east side facility, "I just felt that they need our help, my help at this time and that a donation, knowing that it's going directly to that aid was where I wanted my money to go," Marilyn said.

Ken said though the couple didn't have friends or family in Oklahoma, but he was once stationed in the Sooner State while serving in the army, and was shocked by the damage done, "just the devastation. I can't imagine going through what these people are going through."

Corner said donations could be dropped off at any of the 17 A Family Discount Storage or any Zanes Law Firm sites, "we will use everything. Nothing will go to waste. We could also use your time. If you can come in and volunteer that would be fantastic."
