It’s been nearly a month since a deadly tornado hit Oklahoma but relief is still needed. A local teacher at Summitt Academy in Youngstown is answering that call.
Glen Windram was at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Leetonia Sunday collecting supplies for the tornado victims and disaster relief workers. He will personally drive the supplies to Oklahoma on Tuesday.
The twister killed 24 people and left an estimated $2 billion in damages in its wake.
Windram said he’s met a lot of generous people who want to help.
“You see it everywhere. All the things in our lifetime that we have experiences and people want to help, and you try and provide an opportunity for them and this is a good one,” said Windram.
If you would like to help out with the tornado relief efforts, you still have time. Windram will be collecting items Monday from 9 a.m. until noon at the Covelli Centre, 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Boardman Park and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Eastwood Mall.
Items needed are cleaning supplies, bottled water, medical supplies and diapers. Food and clothing are not needed.
