Lansing Charity Stages Oklahoma Tornado Relief Drive

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - A local non-profit is joining the Oklahoma tornado relief effort. Former MSU and NFL football player T.J. Duckett's New World Flood organization is asking for specific donations to help victims.

The organization opened its doors at the Marshall Street Armory in Lansing today to only collect the following items. Most can be found in a home bathroom or under a kitchen sink.

  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Soap
  • Shaving Cream/Razors
  • Deodorant
  • Trash Bags
  • Gift Cards
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Batteries (All Sizes)
  • Flashlights
  • Work Gloves

"We wanted to give the Lansing area and the Mid-Michigan area a chance to give back, said New World Flood co-founder Heather Sheets. "They may not be able to be next to the individuals in Oklahoma who lost their house, but they can provide a little bit of support."

The organization has set up several drop off sites. Their main one is behind the Marshall Street Armory, 330 Marshall Street, Suite 101 in Lansing.

They'll take items until next Friday, May 31 and then either ship or drive them to three Oklahoma-based insurance companies. The companies will then distribute the items to individual families.
