GREENE COUNTY, AR -- Tornados damaged so much last week in Marmaduke, including the girls' softball fields. They have already been rebuilt once after a tornado swept through in 1997.
That is exactly what the Paragould Youth Softball Association is working to do. They started collecting a voluntary gate fee Monday night and will continue through the week. They've already raised well over $1,000 and hopefully that number will grow even more.
Even some of the players wanted to help out.
They said they mainly have one goal in mind.
"Hope they can play softball again," says Bryant.
Not only have the parks lost most everything, but they've lost their incoming revenue. However, hopefully with the help of their good neighbors, these fields will be in play before long.
