Express-1 holding donation drives for Oklahoma victims

Posted:

Local businesses are also doing what they can for those affected in Oklahoma, and they're asking for your help.

Express-1, a shipping company out of Buchanan, is holding several drives to gather donations to send to Oklahoma.

The company plans to fill 4 semi trucks with the help of community members.

Donations of non-perishable food items will be accepted, as well as personal hygiene items and blankets.

The company says that they have already had a number of their truck drivers volunteer to make the drive.

Tony Northcutt says, "It just shows the spirit of not just Express-1 , but people just wanting to help people and that's what this is about."

Express-1, with the help of the United Way of Southwest Michigan, has coordinated a drop off location in Oklahoma with the Red Cross.

They are hoping to get the trucks filled and sent out on Friday evening or Saturday morning in order to have them arrive in Oklahoma before Monday.

The donation drives will be held at several Martin's Grocery Stores around the area on Friday from 7 am to 3 pm:

Martin's #11, 926 Erskine Plaza in South Bend
Martin's #14, 555 E. Jackson Blvd in Elkhart
Martin's #16, 12850 St. Rd. 23 in Granger
 
Drop off locations for those who cannot attend Friday's drive are as follows:
 
Express-1, 429 Post Road in Buchanan, MI
8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.  Friday

    Make a statement with the Summer 2014 hair and makeup trends

    Makeup at the Summer 2014 fashion shows wasn't what you'd normally expect. Usually models sport bold eye-shadows, thick black eyeliner, and bronzed sun-kissed skin.
