JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – As the Red Wolves head to Mobile, Alabama for the Go Daddy Bowl they plan on bringing more than just their fans.

Several businesses and organizations in North East Arkansas are coming together to create a relief drive to help collect items for the victims affected by the tornado.

The devastating tornado that hit the community of Mobile damaged several homes and businesses. For ASU Wide Receiver, Carlos McCantes, that tornado didn't just damage Mobile but his hometown.

"It very devastating and sad for those families that lost their homes and stuff they got for Christmas. I mean it was sad," said McCantes.

Liberty Bank has opened up an account for monetary donations. The bank already has an account for anyone to show up wanting to help the town of Mobile.

"For anyone that wants to donate there's an account set up at Liberty Bank. It will either be with the Touchdown Club or the ASU Red wolves Foundation," said President of the Touchdown Club, Rick Baker.

"It's a blessing to have this Arkansas state family to join together to help my home town," said McCantes.

To donate, here is a list of drop off locations in the area:

-Liberty Bank

-Coffee Gallery

-Club Tan

-ASU Football Complex
