The group collecting items for storm victims are still in need of food, water and baby supplies.

The cutoff date for donations of goods is March 7, but the collection group says monetary contributions will still be welcomed.

The group will continue to accept monetary donations.

Checks or money orders can be made out to:

Little Chapel Church Release Fund

3859 Hwy 34 North

Harrisburg IL 62946

A group from Southwest Louisiana stopped in Lake Arthur, La and picked up additional donations for victims affected by the Harrisburg, Ill. tornadoes.

"We packed up a trailer early Saturday morning and headed to Harrisburg. We are returning to Lake Arthur on Sunday to pick up more supplies," volunteer Wally Guidry said. "We will then head to Lake Charles to pick up more."

Guidry explained that the group chose Harrisburg because of their ties to a few friends from that area who helped out SWLA during the aftermath of 2005 Hurricane Rita.

All donations accepted went to The Little Chapel Church in Harrisburg, Ill. The church distributed

the items to those in need throughout the Illinois area and to other states in need.

A group in SWLA will accept donations on Monday in Lake Charles for victims affected by the Harrisburg, Ill. storm damage.

The group requests clothes, canned goods, blankets, pillows and items for babies and children. No furniture will be accepted.

For more information call (337) 563-6645 or to contact the drop-off location directly call (337) 433-6373.
