UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- A group of UI students is raising money to help their hometown. This is a pile of donations for Fill the Truck.

Jessica Weston is from Washington. She's having students collect items tornado victims might need. Then, she and friends will drive the truck to Washington.

Weston says she wanted to help after seeing the devastation. They'll finish loading the truck and will make the trip to Washington Thursday.
