Tornado relief effort in Tuscaloosa, Ala., area raises $40,800 for Oklahoma

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — A tornado relief effort in the Tuscaloosa area, which was devastated during storms in April 2011, has raised more than $40,000 for tornado victims in the Moore, Okla.

The Tuscaloosa News reports that the Alabama effort raised $40,800 in 10 days.

The money was used to buy $50 gift cards that were distributed Wednesday and Thursday to residents in the Moore area whose homes and property were destroyed or severely damaged on May 20.

Four employees from Nucor Steel Tuscaloosa, which helped organize the relief effort, took the gift cards to Oklahoma this week, where local officials helped them get to the victims.
