BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) - A Beavercreek church knows when the going gets tough, the tough get going.
Immediately after hearing about the Oklahoma tornado, the Beavercreek Church of the Nazarene stepped up to help collect much needed supplies. Its donation drive is only one way you can help the victims of the Oklahoma tornado.
The church is collecting non-perishable items to take to the victims of the tornado.
Pastor Sharon Fulcher says her church has some parishioners with family in the tornado-stricken area.
"One of our staff members grew up in that area," said Fulcher.
She says items such as bottled water, gloves, diapers, sanitizers and pet supplies are needed.
"Things that can be transported safely and that are not perishable."
Donations will be accepted at the church until Sunday. The trailer load of donations will leave Sunday morning.
The church is located at 1850 North Fairfield Road in Beavercreek.
