After Monday's violent tornado outbreak in the nation's heartland, many of us want to open our hearts and our wallets, to help the victims of the Moore, Oklahoma tornado.

The Liverpool Community Church is holding a Tornado Relief Clothing Drive this week to support the Salvation Army and its relief efforts.

The church on Fourth Street in the Village is accepting clean clothes in good condition, from all ages, sizes and shapes.

You may bring items to the front of the church at 800 Fourth Street this Wednesday, Thursday or Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The church is accepting donations this weekend as well - Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

The church says all of the clothing and funds collected will be immediately forwarded to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.

You may also write a check for the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, and bring it to the church.
