OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - A metro couple has been granted access to ground zero in the Moore, Okla., tornado, and they're using that access to deliver much needed donations.
Scott and September Trible collected donations outside of Antioch Church on Sunday morning with plans to drive to Oklahoma Sunday afternoon. The television images of the devastation inspired them to load up their trailer and help.
The couple has been given a list of approved donation items that will best assist in the relief efforts.
"It really touched my heart what the families were going through. We had this trailer, so we decided to help out," said September Trible.
Approved items that can be donated are:
-Diapers, baby wipes, personal wipes and hand sanitizer.
-Canned goods, non-perishable food and snack items. Water and sports drinks, including mixes in large quantities.
-Heavy duty large black trash bags, durable work gloves, heavy duty scoop shovels and heavy duty rakes
-Peroxide and bandages
-Clothes. Clothing must be clean, sorted and labeled according to age group and gender.
The collection drop off location is Antioch Church located at I-35 and Antioch. The address is 5201 Antioch, Overland Park, Kan. Items can be dropped off Sunday between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
