WARREN, Ohio - The tragic traffic accident that claimed six young lives in Warren has some people stepping forward to help the families of the victims.

"We believe it's important to let them know that they're not alone," says Rick Oaks, pastor at First United Methodist Church in Warren.

Oaks says he and other local pastors are doing what they can to collect donations for the families of the six victims in Sunday's crash.

They're trying to remove the stress of funeral expenses.

"We know some families need considerable help, others perhaps not so much, but whatever the needs are, the community really does have a longing to come together to help and meet those needs," Oaks says.

The owners of Caesar's Italian Restaurant in Warren felt compelled to help, they're donating trays of pasta to each of the families; an anonymous donor is offering to pay for six resting spots; and Anointed Publications in Youngstown is printing the programs for services free of charge.

"The Lord let upon my heart to see what I could do," says the owner of the printing business, Reuben Gordon.

Donations for the Gifts for Our Children fund are still being collected at any Huntington Bank branch and on its website.
