OSHKOSH - One week ago yesterday an EF-5 twister hit Moore, Oklahoma, killing 24 people.
As the city continues to recover, more help from here in Northeast Wisconsin is on the way.
Box after box lined a semi trailer in the Oshkosh West High School parking lot Tuesday. Almost a week after the Oklahoma tornado relief drive began with just a handful of donated items, the trailer now holds more than 20,000 pounds of supplies.
"It was actually really exciting and I'm really proud that we were able to get this done for the people who need it," said Oshkosh West student Halie Loesch.
Thousands of pounds of supplies from tarps to toilet paper will be making the two day trip to Oklahoma. And the rest of this trailer that now sits empty will soon be filled with pallets of donated mops, brooms and shovels that will be used to help in the cleanup.
Rochelle Kuphal helped organize the relief drive with the school's FFA chapter. Kuphal lived through the Oakfield tornado in Fond du Lac County in 1996. She's also riding with the supplies to Oklahoma to give the help she once received.
"Sad, but exciting that they are going to have all this new. These tarps are going to be a huge, huge help. All these work gloves, the shovels, the bleach, the detergent, the diapers, it's just unbelievable," said Kuphal.
Donations came from across the city, some even came in Tuesday morning as the truck was about to leave. Students say it's a message of support from the bottom of their hearts.
"It's really sad, but now that we have all of this stuff we will be able to help them and hopefully they'll be able to get it together again," said Oshkosh West student Alayna Vadnais.
With help from their friends a thousand miles away.
The trailer is expected to arrive in Moore, Oklahoma Wednesday night.
