"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.[jump]
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."
