Graham Bealls employee Amy Clark collected donations to help victims of the tornadoes in Granbury last week, and now she's planning on making a trip to Moore, Okla., if more donations come in.
Clark took a trailer full of donated items to Granbury Monday and said the community seems to have received many donations with more coming in.
Clark is continuing to accept monetary donations to send to Granbury and Cleburne. Both communities were damaged by tornadoes Wednesday, May 15. Six people were killed in Granbury, and others were injured.
Bealls' parent company, Stage Stores Inc., will match up to $5,000 in donations to be sent to the victims in Granbury and Cleburne.
While Clark was delivering the donations to Granbury on Monday, a massive tornado was destroying much of Moore, Okla. After seeing an interest from Graham residents to assist the Oklahoma victims, Clark said she will take donations to Moore on Sunday or Monday if she receives enough.
“The only thing I'm worried about is getting too much,” she said. “I only have a 6-foot trailer. I don't want to turn anything away; maybe I can borrow a bigger, covered trailer if I need to.”
Clark also said she needs to find a contact in Moore so that she knows where to take the donations.
To make a donation of money or items to recent tornado victims, visit the Graham Bealls store at 1108 Highway 16 South. If you can offer assistance with the donation delivery or if you have a trailer that can be used, call Clark at the store at (940) 521-9372.
