An Iowa organization and resident are working to help victims of the Oklahoma tornado which devastated the town of Moore in Monday’s E-F-five tornado that killed 24.
Greater Des Moines YMCA’s are in the midst of a donation drive for those in Oklahoma. The Y is asking for asking for donations of work gloves, dust masks, nutritious, non-perishable food and gift cards, since the Red Cross is covering basic needs items.
The resident who is helping those hurt by the tornadoes is Mary Dooley of Marshalltown.
Dooley will leave from the Des Moines Airport to lend her assistance, Friday. The local Red Cross says it anticipates more deployments in the next few days.
