CHAMPAIGN -- The school district is taking donations for Oklahoma. The Unit 4 PTA is holding a relief drive.

Drop off boxes will be set up at every school. They're asking for cleaning and school supplies. Parents put the drive together in a matter of hours.

"It's always hard to see families have to struggle through this. When you look at people who are displaced and have everything taken away from them, you have to think about what that would do to you. When you have an opportunity to help you always want to pitch in when you can," PTA vice president Sheri Williamson said.

You can find donation boxes at each school, or take your donations to PNC Bank under the PTA Council's account.
