ASU athletics collects donations for tornado victims

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- The Arkansas State Athletic Department has collected donations for the tornado victims of central Arkansas.

All week students, faculty, staff and community members have dropped off items to help those who were affected by the April 27th tornado.

Jerry Scott, Assistant Director of Athletics for Media Relations, said they hope what they've done will help.

"Our hearts go out to those people that have been impacted by this tornado, obviously as the rest of the nation. We're excited to be able to give back to those people and hopefully do our small part to help them begin that rebuilding process," Scott said.

On Saturday, Coach Anderson and several student athletes will drive the football equipment truck to the relief fund drive location.
