People all around the area are trying to help those who lost everything in Oklahoma.
Now, a local 911 dispatcher is joining the relief efforts, packing-up a U-Haul and driving down to the worst hit areas herself.
Chris Foster of Barbour County is collecting items to take down to Oklahoma to help those who lost everything.
She'll be joined by her best friend when she goes down there at the end of June.
"Right now, they have tons of people, but everyone's lives have to go on. So, when people start to leave, that's when we hope to come in," said Foster. "It's amazing. I put up a Facebook message this morning, and my phone and Facebook has gone crazy. Everyone has called and asked how they can help, what they can do. It's amazing the support that's come through."
They're asking for toiletries, animal supplies, and non-perishable foods.
They'll have a trailer outside the courthouse until they leave where you can drop off those items.
You can also make a donation at the Premier Bank in Philippi. The account there is "Barbour County Relief for Oklahoma".
They also have a Facebook page set up under "Barbour County Relief for Oklahoma".
