FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla.- First Baptist Church will be collecting money and new or gently used items that can be put on a semi-truck and driven to Moore, Oklahoma to benefit tornado victims.
The church is open Monday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
They are also seeking volunteers for the trip. Departure is planned for noon on July 14th, when volunteers will make the 18-hour drive to Moore.
Two fundraisers are planned to pay for the trip. The church will hold a fundraiser at Chuck's Last Stop on the 6th of July, and another at the Nauti Turtle on 13th of July. The church will be selling T-shirts at both events, and also at a variety of locations on Fort Myers Beach.
