People in our area are all too familiar with weather-related emergencies as the flooding out west in Colorado continues to cause problems.
The Roanoke Valley is well-known for its incredible volunteer effort in times like these, so it's no surprise that Gleaning for the World is responding to the flooding in a big way.
Day one of the supply drive is in the books and there's still time Wednesday for you to help If you couldn't make it out Tuesday.
Gleaning for the World volunteers set up outside of Sam's Club on Wards Rd. in Lynchburg Tuesday, collecting money, food, water, cleaning supplies and pet food.
The non-profit decided Sunday it had to do something to help, so Monday they spent the day organizing this supply drive for flood victims.
They say this is a unique disaster since it's still unfolding and people are still being rescued by crews.
A truck loaded up with 4,200 pounds of blankets for victims staying in shelters is expected to pull out of Gleaning for the World Tuesday evening and make its way to Colorado.
If you would like to donate stop by between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Wednesday.
