      Florence to help Oklahoma tornado victims

      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:

      Bottled Water

      Gatorade/PowerAde

      Work Gloves

      Flash Lights

      Batteries

      Non-Perishable Food

      Individually wrapped snacks

      Hand Sanitizer

      Diapers

      Baby Wipes

      Infant Formula

      Sunscreen

      Tooth brushes

      Toothpaste

      Hair brushes

      Soap

      Hand towels (new please)

      Juice Boxes

      Paper Towels

      Toilet Paper

      Shampoo

      Feminine products

      Hand/body lotion

      *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.
