WLFI organized a Tornado Relief Drive in greater Lafayette.
We partnered with the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Wabash National, Regions Bank and area auto dealerships to help bring relief to the storm-damaged areas in southern Indiana.
Other than cash donations, which were preferred, the Salvation Army also accepted some items needed include laundry detergent, diapers, cleaning supplies, heavy-duty trash bags, cases of bottled water, plastic storage containers, work boots and shoes.
The donations are scheduled to be delivered to southern Indiana on Tuesday, March 13.
Beginning Wednesday, March 7, Wabash National, Regions Bank, and area auto dealerships accepted goods to fill a trailer to take down to southern Indiana.
