Help is pouring in for tornado relief from the surrounding areas and even as far as Tennessee and Kentucky. 

 

Ashley Earnest with Central Illinois Food Bank says this is a very difficult time for all of Central Illinois as over 20 tornadoes swept through the state on Saturday. Earnest knows that there may be some out there wanting to help, but wondering how, she explains.

 

 

Amy Hagen is with the Taylorville Food Pantry, she says this weekend they originally were only going to be open for about two hours. Folks kept showing up in need so the food pantry ended up being open 12 hours on Sunday. Hagen says their warehouse on Main Cross is getting full but there is still a place to donate in town.

 

 

Earnest and Hagen appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
