So many people have donated clothes and other goods to the Salvation Army in the wake of Sunday's tornado that the organization can't accept any more.

"In just two days we've filled two whole semi-trucks with all the food, clothing, diapers, hygiene products, and other items needed by tornado survivors," Darryl Leedom, Twin Cities Salvation Army Commander, said in a statement. "We deeply appreciate the outpouring of support."

That doesn't mean you can't still help.

The organization says it still needs monetary donations to provide survivors with financial assistance, gas cards, food vouchers, and other necessities. Connect with it via its website, calling 800-SAL-ARMY (725-2769), or by sending a check to The Salvation Army, 2445 Prior Ave. N., Roseville, MN 55113. Make sure to designate your gift "metro storm."
