The Rio Grande Valley is stepping up to help victims of the deadly tornado in Moore, Oklahoma.
At least 24 people, including nine children, were killed when an EF-5 tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma.
The natural disaster is marked as one of the worst in the Oklahoma state history.
Action 4 News has teamed up with the American Red Cross, Royal Freight, KURV 710 AM, the Monitor and its sister newspapers to collect items for survivors.
Volunteers accepted bottled water, bottled juices, non-perishable food items, new socks, toiletries, and cash.
The generosity was overwhelming today as we watched hundreds of people stop by our locations in Harlingen and Pharr.
"I'm an extreme couponer, so I had a lot of goodies around the house. I thought, any little bit helps," one donor said.
From candy to money, the donations will make their way up to Oklahoma.
The truck will be pulling out of the KGBT station tomorrow morning and head North to Oklahoma.
