General Manager Jim Pratt says he's been involved in disasters before and after seeing the devastation, he knew he had to act.

"People are hurting. They need help. They just need to know that somebody is there to put an arm around them and say 'Here's some clean sheets, here's some detergent, here's some household products, here's some food,'" explained Pratt.

They're still collecting donations and stress the need for new items, not used.

They plan to send the two trucks they were loading down to Texas Tuesday or Wednesday.
