Fri, 24 May 2013 16:21:57 GMT —
Groups across Florence County are coming together to provide relief to the Oklahoma tornado victims.
They're collecting donations at the Florence Civic Center on Tuesday, May 28 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The American Red Cross will set up a donation shelter in the upper parking lot area of the civic center. It needs money the most. Volunteers will be able to accept various payment methods.
It's also collecting the following items:
Individually wrapped snacks
Hand towels (new please)
*Please no clothing, furniture or household items
The Red Cross also suggests donating blood. A Mobile Blood Unit will be parked in the parking lot, collecting donations.
If you can't make it, you can make a ten dollar donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief fund by texting the word REDCROSS to 90999. The donation will show up on your wireless bill, or be deducted from your balance if you have a prepaid phone.
