May 21, 2013 Updated Nov 22, 2013 at 10:55 AM EST

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- The Community Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Indiana has announced ways that our community can help out with the Oklahoma Tornado relief efforts.

"Our hearts are with those affected by the massive tornado that hit Oklahoma on Monday, May 20th. We are collecting "hand-held" food such as granola bars and other ready-to-eat foods that do not require cooking or a can-opener and also financial donations for those relief efforts. At this time they do not require water or any other kind of food donations.

"Please drop off hand-held or ready-to-eat food and/or financial donations at our 999 E. Tillman Road facility between 7:30am - 5 pm Monday - Friday. We will collect those items until further notice.

"Please make checks out to Community Harvest and in the memo line write "OKC Tornado Relief." We will send all donations collected at the end of each week to our Feeding America partners in the affected area.

"THANK YOU, Northeast Indiana!"
