Mission Harvest responding to Oklahoma tornado

Local organizers with Mission Harvest are launching an Oklahoma Response Project after they say they've made assessments of the things most needed in the area.

Organizers will be accepting items like grab-and-go snacks, flashlights and batteries, bottled water and personal care items from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 5589 Commonwealth Avenue. They're also asking for volunteers to help process these items for shipping.

The group also needs money to pay for processing all the items received and delivery trucks. You can make deposits at any Sun Trust Bank to the Mission Harvest America Fund, account no. 1000136054813.
