TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) - A Topeka group is teaming up to help young people affected by the tornadoes that hit the Oklahoma City area.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the Topeka Youth Project's Youth Council is coordinating with local youth groups and collecting items for teens and day care-aged children in Moore and El Reno, Okla., and the surrounding areas that were hit by the recent tornadoes.
Georgianna Wong, executive director of the Topeka Youth Council, says items being collected for teens include curling irons, hair dryers, shampoo, conditioner, flip flops and clothing. For day care-aged children, riding toys, books, coloring books, crayons, sidewalk chalk, card games, small chairs and tables, dolls, trucks and general toys are being gathered.
Items are being collected until July 15.
