Hubbard schools members pack truck to send to twister victims

Posted: Updated:

HUBBARD, Ohio - Help is on the way to tornado ravaged regions in the Moore, Oklahoma area, where the clean up continues after twisters ripped through homes and schools in recent weeks.

Hubbard School District members say a truck is almost half-full of items they plan to deliver to that state next week.

The school is storing fresh and non-perishable food items inside the school to pack last.

The plan is to have this truck on the road by Monday, June 10.

Almost 50 volunteers have donated their time, to help collect the donations.

"Not only has this community pulled together, but our teachers and our staff have been helping so tremendously, they've been here everyday," Rhonda Baldwin-Amorganos said, district treasurer.

Donations are still being collected in the former Roosevelt school parking lot, through this weekend.

The school is accepting personal hygiene items, paper products, water and clothing. Donations can be dropped off through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
