CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - Rep. Mike Bost (R-Murphysboro) will be collecting supplies for victims of this weeks tornado in Moore, Oklahoma on Friday, May 24 and Saturday, May 25.
“I realize it’s very last minute, but this all came together quickly," Bost said. "We’re asking for everyone to help out as much as they can. The people of Moore, Oklahoma have lost so much, and every little bit of help we can provide will make their lives a bit better."
Bost says his office has partnered with Mark Barr Trucking from Pinckneyville to load up an 18-wheeler with supplies and send it to Oklahoma.
“I’d like to thank everyone in advance for donating to this effort," said Bost. "I challenge anyone to find another region with as big of a heart and with more compassion for its fellow man than southern Illinois."
